Emanuel and the Fear
Emanuel And The Fear, based in Brooklyn, New York, started to work on a new album after a four year hiatus since their last release, The Janus Mirror in 2012. Inspired by a quote by Igor Stravinsky they found a new way to approach their songwriting. Diverging from the progressive and fantastical elements of its predecessor, Primitive Smile adheres to the most formulaic elements of pop music: the verse, the repeating chorus and the single bridge. In creating more refined song structures they intend to break the shackles of the popular mindset and attain an honest and unique communication through music.
"Dense pianosounds, playful jazz twists and turns, blown away voices, groove. One thinks to listen to a young Joni Mitchell, maybe Kate Bush. But with piano and trombone. Hard to classify" - NDR Info
„CATT captivates tremendously with her piano ballades. Thrilling songs, dark, mystic and homely like a moonlit night. She will make it big" – DLF Kultur
"With her voice, piano, trumpet and trombone, supported by a fantastic band, CATT created iridescent pop chansons - sometimes impulsively improvising, sometimes gently soaring. Amazement. Goosebumps. Lots of applause" – Hamburger Abendblatt
