FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –
The French-Slavic singer and songwriter known as Claudia Katarina has released her new LP album, “Sentiments éternels” (Eternal Feelings). The record is comprised of 12 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes. It has been released with accompanying official music videos for the singles, “Histoire a la con,” and “Mon kosovo.” A return to the sounds of such chanteuses as Francoise Hardy, Sylvie Vartan and Marie Laforet yet with a contemporary pop tone and feel, “Sentiments éternels” by Claudia Katarina is one of the most charming and heartfelt international releases of the winter 2013 season.
Claudia Katarina, a model who left the photo industry in lieu of her music career, cites as main artistic influences such popular French artists as Zaz, Vanessa Paradis, and Serge Gainsbourg. Intuitively, her sound evokes the tones and moods of each of these, though with her own character and groove.
Katarina’s lyrical themes are often darker than her accompanying music may portray, and her musical poetry often turns to complex, mature themes that only rarely are found in pop music. Being part Slavic, herself, she deeply feels the sting of the Yugoslavian military conflicts and writes with a heavy heart about them in songs such as “Mon kosovo,” which opening track is nuanced with accents of Albanian and Serbian music styles.
Early successes from Katarina’s “Sentiments éternels” LP have been “Grande ou petite,” an insouciant pop song with joie de vivre and youth, “Un nouveau monde,” a funky, disco-flavored track about peace on Earth, and “Je t’aime, je te déteste,” a shadowy, passionate song about being divided between feelings of love and hate.
“Sentiments éternels” is one of the most unique records to come out of the 2012 year, and is sure to find itself in the favorite catalogs of music fans all over the world.
“Sentiments éternels” by Claudia Katarina is available online worldwide.
