Meet Dannii, a graphic designer from Singapore
"I started this French Indie Rock/Pop playlist on Spotify back in 2014, when I discovered some pretty cool French tunes during my music journey.I then realized there was a gap in the scene for such a playlist/genre at that time - French Indie Rock, and honestly was really surprised that there were no other such playlists other than mine. And it became a hobby of mine, searching for the right tune and listening to each of them, building a playlist that I was really passionate about. "
What music did you grow up listening to as a young kid?
I grew up watching MTV, and was quickly attracted to bands like Blur, Oasis, Suede and Radiohead. The Britpop sound in particular really appealed to me at that time.
What artist, dead or alive would you interview and why?
Damon Albarn, because he is extremely talented. It would be awesome to try to get to know him a little better.
Or John Lennon, because he is a legend!
What is the best concert you’ve ever been to and why?
I think it was 2015 when I saw The Vaccines in Bangkok. It was extra memorable as it was a totally last minute decision to watch them and the best one yet.
It was at a location that wasn't super easy to get to, and the raw passion and energy from the crowd was excellent and you could really tell the band was loving every moment of it. Everyone in the hall was enjoying themselves. The good vibes continued at the afterparty and the band was there
What is the last song you listened to?
Somebody by Dream Wife
Name your top 3 favorite artist and why?
From my playlist, the top 3 artists would be Juniore, La Femme and Requin Chagrin at the moment.
I've always had a liking for 60s retro sounds and psychrock/pop. And when I heard Juniore for the first time, I liked them instantly. La Femme's Me Suive(Saint Laurent) was one of the first songs that made me fall in love with them.
Outside of my playlist, it would be Tame Impala, Alt J, and The Smiths at the moment.
Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?
Take care of our planet, there is only one earth.
