New Artist: Cinnamon Girl Is Kind Of Like The Danish Robyn But With M.I.A.’s Style

Who is Cinnamon Girl?
That’s the moniker for Camilla Roholm, so chosen because she thought it sounded like a superhero. She didn’t get any superpowers, but this London-based Danish pop wonder woman is pretty fly. She made a stir on music blogs last year with her super-catchy track Friends (and its accompanying neon music video showcasing her unique sense of style), and now is doing so again with the possibly-even-better Devil Inside Me (also with a sick music video, this one a Mondrian-blocked mash-up of herself dancing).

Sound?

She’s like the Danish Robyn, with M.I.A.’s style. It’s 100% pop, but since when is that a bad thing? This is dance music. For the club, the house party, the Friday night getting-dressed dance routine you do alone in underwear. Super fun, a combo of that ’80s swing-your-hair element and modern synth work. Not to mention, her voice rocks — not too girly, nor too growly. Just right.

Is it like, Top 40 girl music though?

We said pop, not Carly Rae Jepsen. Cinnamon Girl is a bad-ass — see her neon eyeshadow to match her Docs, holographic Lennon glasses and penchant for tutus. We’re a little obsessed with her style, and a lot obsessed with her music. She only has a handful of tracks right now, but stay tuned — you know how these poppettes take off.
