Quick-fire questions: Josie Man

Morning routines, her love of Peggy Gou and studio essentials.

Josie Man is a relative newcomer, but her vibrant approach to bedroom pop coupled with her ability to paint luscious dreamscapes is catching looks.

Hailing from both Orpington and Hong Kong, the 21 year old is a thoroughly modern artist. Identity is key to everything she does, with her music providing a cathartic medium to illustrate to the world who she is. There’s no half measures as she pens her truth in her lyrics and creates exaggerated and beautiful immersive worlds as highlighted in her bubblegum-glazed video for ‘Colours’.

Tipped for big things the South-Londoner is building on her initial momentum, dropping a new EP ‘aLOVINGboothang’ to follow up her recent string of singles.

We caught up with Josie to shoot her some questions and find out what makes her tick.
