Having started her career as an unprecedentedly talented and bright indie folk singer-songwriter, Katarzia smoothly became one of the most overally acclaimed musicians in Slovakia. Her debut LP “Generácia Y“ thrust her into the limelight of the local music scene and with the 2016 record “Agnostika”, she opened up to a broader (nationality- and genre-wise) audience, as she had previously moved to Czechia’s capital, Prague, and somehow ended up forming a full-blown band around herself.
In 2018, Katarzia put out a new album/project, “Antigona”, which was originally created for the Slovak National Theatre (SND) and their play of the same name. “Antigona” is without a doubt Katarzia’s yet most exciting and profound piece of work, while it is crutial to mention that it was heavily marked by the influence of Pjoni, Slovak producer, whom Katarzia has been working with (on the album, as well as on stage at this point). Katarzia‘s sound might have changed, but what persists is her subtle lyricism that does not lack wit, yet it can also be poignant and distressing.
“Antigona” is an excellent album that absorbed the best of contemporary (electro) pop music and liberal feminism, which – in the context of Slovak and Czech scene – seems more radical than ever.
