Bubblegum pop newcomer Cookii instantly captivated us with her debut single ‘coca-cola’ back in July and each new release has us even more hooked. We caught up with the enigmatic artist to talk Lil Mariko, her fave thing to cook and Daft Punk.

With latest single ‘not that inna you’ Cookii crafts a twinkling, nostalgic grunge-pop cut full of bouncy, squelching pop and bursts of emo-rock guitar lines with Cookii’s candy-sweet vocals soaring throughout. Describing it herself as “cookii’s version of [Kelly Clarkson’s] ‘Since You’ve Been Gone'” and drawing inspiration from Paramore, ‘not that inna you’ is a bonafide bop that exudes empowering self-assurance and we can’t get enough. The track is also accompanied by some incredible visuals by Lenore – check it out below.
