Chrissy from Floral Schoppe talks feminism, burlesque & finding your true self.
💖 Where are you from?
I am Estonian & American, & I’ve been living in London for 7 years now.
💖 What inspires you to play music?
What inspires me the most is the feeling.
Playing makes me feel like I have an alter ego somewhere in a different world, experiencing something crazy within each song.
All the alter egos are together my true self. & I don’t get that feeling anywhere else.
💖 Who are your main influences in music / life?
I am obsessed with burlesque!
The fact that these amazing people can get half naked in front of a crowd really made me reanalyse how I view/live life.
From Dita Von Teese, Frankie Fictitious, Betty Rose Royal & so many more… It made me love myself & what I do.
I can dress how I want, look how I want and thats how I’ve been learning who I am in life. I translate that into my music and performance.
Also I truly feel inspired and look up to Brooke Candy & Grimes.
They just make the music they love and perform their hearts out.
Even if their music isn’t the most popular they are unapologetically themselves – thats all I want for myself.
💖 When you’re not doing band stuff what do you get up to?
I get up to everything!
Currently getting into fashion PR/Media & Fashion/Music events production.
You can find me organising music events, creating weird photo content & taking up any chance to socialise with new people. Many memes . .
💖 What’s the most feminist thing you’ve ever done?
I’m not quit sure!
In life generally… at every show, meeting or event I go to I just wanna prove that I am just as capable as any guy or person out there.
I have different skills, like you do. I have ideas, I have a voice & just want people to take me seriously like they would anyone else.
Just because I’m a woman & look alternative doesn’t mean I don’t have a brain.
💖 What word best describes you as a band?
💖 What’s next for you guys?
We really just want to be creative & play music together!
It’s really fun bringing people together at shows. We’ve made so many friends at shows & it’s honestly amazing. Definitely planning to make more art & travel. Musically we’re about to finish up an album & then we’ve got a music video to film!
