Sweden seems to be churning out a lot of blonde, sexy singers with catchy tunes these days. It’s almost like there is a factory over there with a conveyor belt of pop princesses jumping off the end and onto the charts.
We’ve already had Robyn and Charlotte Perrelli -” and now we have September.
If you haven’t heard September’s debut single Cry For You you must have been hiding under a rock or spending too much time on Gaydar -” because it is getting spun on high rotation at almost every club across Sydney.
Sure, it has taken Australia a while to catch on to the Swedish singer’s talents, but then that’s nothing unusual. The important thing is we are finally listening and the track is having a compulsive effect on our feet.
At first, when I was younger, I was really inspired by Sophie Ellis-Bextor and the way she did pop and disco, September told Sydney Star Observer.
I also loved early Madonna and of course Kylie -” I love what she created with her own image and I think it’s beautiful.
The gay community seems to really appreciate how I make my shows colourful and artsy. I also have a lot of dancers and wear unique outfits.
September is scheduled to pay a visit to Australia in October where she will perform at an exclusive media launch. She may also pop up at an Oxford St gay bar or two -” so keep your eyes peeled.
Of course the mini-tour will coincide with the release of her album and probably a new single -” as they always do.
September said it is her belief that the secret to a great song lies in the emotion of the lyrics.
I’m very much all for the music, and the lyrics are very important to make the music sound how I want it to, she said.
When they asked me if I wanted to do Cry For You, I fell in love with the song immediately.
I love to do the dance, disco, pop stuff. At the moment a lot of dance songs are being released without heart and soul. With Cry For You you really feel the tears in the lyrics and the deeper meaning of the track -” I love the sound of desperation you can hear in it.
