Jinder at Ultra Music Festival March 27

On her single "Youth Blood," Josefine Jinder confesses to possessing a "late-night thirst." But gratification has been anything but immediate for the self-described electronica girl who grew up listening to Art of Noise and Aphex Twin. Her early recordings amounted to diffident mimicry, the vocals buried in a morass of production effects. And it wasn't until Jinder quit school at 17 and left Sweden to pursue formal musical training in England that she gained the confidence to stake out her own territory. "On my first EP, you can hear that I'm delicate with doing things. I was experimental but in a totally shy way," she says. "In England, I wasn't scared about making music anymore." Released by Brooklyn-based label Trouble & Bass, 2009's Youth Blood holds nothing back, its urgent stabs of synth and strident chorus as brash as her earlier Polyhedron EP was timid.

But Jinder didn't use that momentum to churn out newfangled dance-floor anthems. Instead, she took a detour and wrote a spate of acoustic songs. "In the past, I was focused much more on production, but now I'm paying attention to the instruments and trying to develop my singing and songwriting," she says. And after a year and a half of no new releases and few live appearances, she'll take the stage at Ultra and then deliver a new single in May. She might have kept us waiting, but you can delay the inevitable for only so long.
