Chrissy from Floral Schoppe talks feminism, burlesque & finding your true self.

πŸ’– Where are you from?

I am Estonian & American, & I’ve been living in London for 7 years now.

πŸ’– 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.

πŸ’– 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.

πŸ’– 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 . .

πŸ’– 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.

πŸ’– What word best describes you as a band?

Fearless

πŸ’– 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!
