Speaking about herself and the relative silence around her outside of music, PinkPantheress said to concer organisers SJM:
Why the secrecy, PP?
“It’s not about secrecy. I’m avoiding stress, and preconceptions.”
“I prefer free rein without worrying about the opinions of others around me.
What are you reading right now?
“I’m deep in my Jacqueline Wilson bag.”
Who influences you?
”Music-wise? Imogen Heap, Kelela, Panic! at the Disco.”
What do you like to do in your spare time?
”Cook. And practice the piano.”
What do your family think about your success so far?
”They’re pretty excited. I come from a lineage of professional chess players, so the music industry is pretty different to what they’ve ever known.”
Tell us a secret.
”I’ve been professionally figure skating since I was a kid.”
