If you're looking to spice up your synth-pop playlist with something sweet, then look no father than newcomer Cinnamon Girl. Our friend Jay at Nu Wave Pony was the first to discover and introduce this lovely lady to me, and boy am I glad that he did! The up-and-coming electrocutie, also known as Camilla Roholm, may be the new kid on the pop block, but her edgy, fizzy electro-pop tunes are seasoned with a polished production well beyond her indie roots.
Bringing to mind the punk-ska leanings of early 90's No Doubt, as well as the stylistic vocal range of Gwen Stefani, London-based singer-songwriter Cinnamon Girl crafts some seriously infectious synth-pop that's at once both edgy and upbeat, punky and polished. Featuring sunny guitar riffs, warbling vocals, new-wave synths, and catchy lyrics that get stuck in your head, Cinnamon Girl creates addictive nu-wave pop that falls somewhere between Gwen Stefani, Robyn, and Cyndi Lauper.
Debut track "Friends," available for free download right now, is a quirky, bright synth-rock track which showcases the singer's signature vibrato, along with stomping synths and chilled-out, grungy guitars.
"Your Eyes Are Glass" offers up a darker slice of electro-rock, with urgent, yelping vocals, electric guitars breakdowns, and an aching bassline that throbs in all the right places.
