Moxiie is about to take over the scene with her jungle pop; her new fusion definitely has us dancing. If you crank up Dancing in Dirt and Animal we guarantee you’ll be hopping out of your chair to have a spontaneous dance party with your gal pals. This girl is about to take charge! But first she answered some of our questions.
Your album is called Jungle Pop; what is jungle pop?
Jungle Pop is a fusion of world music, pop and electro. I decided to title the EP Jungle Pop to mark the genre’s existence.
How would you describe your personal style?
I’d have to say my personal style is just that, personal. It’s pop, it’s alternative, aggressive at times but still chill. It’s just me.
If you were an animal what would you be and why?
I’d probably be a Lion….pretty high on the food chain.
If you were stranded on a desert island what would you NEED to have with you?
My family and machetes.
Your friends are coming over for Saturday night dinner what do you cook them?
OMG! I love to cook! I’d probably make a spicy shrimp salad as an appetizer, baked mango salmon, and I’d fake dessert with purchased mini all butter pound cakes, with a rum cream cheese glaze, bananas and walnuts. I actually wanted to be a chef at one point. I used to cook for my brother and sister. If you’re wondering about the seafood, I’m a pescetarian.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
Public nail clipping is my absolute BIGGEST pet peeve. I don’t understand why anyone thinks it’s ok.
What makes you the happiest?
I’m happiest when I’m making music, following my gut, eating well, in touch with my family and staying active. I actually get a bit depressed without a good sweat session for more than 2 weeks.
What would we find you doing on a Sunday afternoon?
This is a funny question, yesterday (Sunday) you would have found me painting a shelf and taking lots of breaks to dance all crazy to music on the active 80′s french podcast. Haha, I can have fun in a paper bag.
What is your favourite movie of the past year?
I actually just saw Girl Interrupted last year. I’ve had a couple friends tell me I have Girl Interrupted moments in the past, so I had to check it out. Loved it. Wynona Ryder and Angelina Jolie were incredible!
What music are you currently listening to?
I’ve been listening to a LOT of Pink’s Fun House ballads, and by that I mean Glitter In The Air and Crystal Ball on repeat, Jay-Z & Kanye, White Stripes’ We Are Going To Be Friends, The Band Perry – If I Die Young & Sia with David Guetta on Titanium. I get into these loops, where I’m obsessed with a few songs for like 2 months.
Where is the last place you took a plane to and why?
Last place I took a plane to was London to work on music; the best part of that trip was my guerrilla style first visit to Paris. It changed me.
