New Xenomania artists: Florrie Arnold
Posted at 2:16 PM, 09 February 2010 -

Florrie Arnold is a 21-year-old drummer, singer and songwriter. She's the drummer in one of the Xenomania house bands, JFK, which also features Jason Resch (guitar) and Kieran Jones (bass), and also plays guitar, writes and sings her own material.

She recently set up her own website, which includes several pictures with fellow Xenomanians and a few videos with drumming lessons and a new song titled "Call 911" (listen to the Fred Falke remix and watch Florrie and sound engineer Toby Scott working on a remix). There's also an older song called "Name In Lights" on her MySpace.

Florrie played the drums on two of Xenomania's biggest hits in recent years: Girls Aloud's "The Promise" and Alesha Dixon's "The Boy Does Nothing". She also co-wrote Sarah Harding's "Too Bad", which appears on the St. Trinian's II soundtrack. With JFK, she has played live backing for some of Xenomania's new acts (Mini Viva, Jessie Malakouti, Alex Gardner, Eliza Noble, Maxine, etc.).

List of drumming credits:
-- Girls Aloud: "The Promise", "We Wanna Party"
-- Alesha Dixon: "The Boy Does Nothing", "Don't Ever Let Me Go"
-- Banned of St. Trinian's: "Theme To St. Trinian's", "Up & Away", "We Got The Beat", "I Can Get What I Want"
-- Sarah Harding: "Boys Keep Swinging"

So, is she planning to release something as a solo artist? I like the "Name In Lights" demo, I think it could be a good single with a little work.

Yeah, I believe that's the plan. The demo is sweet, but I don't know if it will be a single. The new song "Call 911" seems to be going in a completely different direction. Apparently Fred Falke has remixed it, so it might be her first release.

That sounds great indeed. Very promising!

I love watching these "work in progress" videos. And to think that just a few years ago Xenomania were this incredibly reclusive team who very rarely did interviews and things like that. We didn't even know what they looked like...
