"I wrote all in one sitting. There was so much I was thinking of, I wrote so many alternate versions. It’s funny how some things take forever to articulate, but this didn’t. It practically wrote itself." Luna Kat
"This was the first time ever that someone composes a song especially for me. I was really moved. The lyrics, therefore, reflect upon the magical, heart-to-heart connection that music creates, regardless of age, occupation and stature." Pini Gurfil
"I hope to offer comfort to anyone who is experiencing an extended dark time after their breakup. I want them to know they are not alone but above all I want them to know that there is hope. You can heal." Constanza Herrero
"I still remember the first time I worked on "Rough". I was on the train to Munich for an acting job and I thought of my boyfriend and how nice it would be to be together now and that it doesn't matter how - as long as I feel his touch. Kaysa Rya
Kit Citrine's new album "Midnight Masquerade" is an autobiographical release looking into the artist's life events from the past 2 years. Home to 15 songs and running for 45 minutes, the album covers a variety of highly relevant themes.
Expect each song to be pretty different. We view each one as its own personality, and we nurture them as such. Every creative decision is all about what will help a given song find its full potential and life. Some are extremely minimal, with just a couple voices and a guitar. Some are a lot more active and in your face, involving more rapid fire lyricism, driving electric guitar and drums - programed textures and percussive effects. And although some of our tunes are purely instrumental, we absolutely love words. To us, words are paint. They allow a listener to touch and feel and see. They are often illustrative and we try to pick out words that make what we’re singing about tangible and conversational. Adam Grindler / The Baker's Basement
"So I became friends with someone, we had a lot of chemistry but tried to keep things “just friends”. We spent all our time together and seriously became best friends(with an underlying air of major attraction). One day I decided to go 20-30mins out of my way to get donuts for them, and on the ride to their place I looked over at those donuts and had that wonderful/terrifying realization “Oh Shit… I really really like this person.” I got the inspiration bug and started making voice notes, and by the time I reached their house I had fully written “Oh Shit!”. Madison Davenport
Each of the 10 songs have their own part in the whole picture, and none of them copy from one another. Thus, the listener gets to hear long dreamy guitar instrumentals along with Helena's sweet voice, synth-driven ethereal soundscapes, cozy yet mysterious movie-esque tunes and rocking songs full of driving energy.
"Aurelia is about introspection, but also celebration! I think that, because I’ve made some really dark music, that my persona is rather morose, and that the songs aren’t meant to be listened to in times of joy." Aurelia
I love fishing and have always heard how catfish can make noises to fool people into thinking it is something else. The same idea goes for a wannabe Casanova who really only cares about one night stands and adding to his pile of broken hearts. With social media, people can pretty much be anyone they want to be...whether it's real or not. Jennifer Alvardo
