Emah Fox says she listened to ABBA growing up

High Intensity Synth Pop star Emah Fox says that when she was growing up she listened to ABBA.

In an interview with Greg Phillips at Australianmusician.com.au Emah said, “Growing up my music tastes were formed by my parents so there was a lot of vinyls like Led Zeppelin, folk stuff like Buffy St Marie and ABBA even. It was really diverse. My dad was a big music fan of popular music. I used to listen to a lot of rock stuff. I mum was a classical musician. As a kid you listen to a lot of pop on the radio”.

An Eddie Murphy movie got her interested in techno. “My first memory would be ‘Axel F’, the theme from Beverly Hills Cop,” she says. “I thought that was amazing and I still like it. The first electronic music that I was drawn to making would have been when I started listening to Bjork and then started listening to Tricky, Massive Attack and Portishead. Then I started listening to Jungle and Techno and going to raves.
