about

The debut full-length album of Joanna Kuzma, who hides under the moniker Asia i Koty (Asia and the Cats), is a melancholy masterpiece bound to banish even the most stubborn remnants of summer.
Kuzma is consequently asserting her place as the most interesting female artist on the Polish music scene, evoking associations with the likes of Cat Power or Azure Ray. The multi-instrumentalist recorded and mixed the vast majority of the tracks on her own at home, with Nasiono Records’ mastermind Karol Schwarz adding the finishing touches. The resulting 11 songs form a coherent whole, built around semi-acoustic guitar, piano, delicate electronica and Kuzma’s distinctive deep voice. Kuzma’s lyrics are marked by an undercurrent of sadness and resignation – the nightmare of any psychologist or personal coach – and sung with a conviction that makes them all the more poignant.
Keep out of reach of children.


Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Miaow.

about

Asia i Koty Gdańsk, Poland

Asia’s hypnotic songs are often based just on a couple of simple chords. But as soon as she starts to sing the whole accompaniment (and the whole surrounding) doesn’t matter anymore.

The music of Asia i Koty is extremely introverted. It neither flirts with the audience nor plays tricks on listeners. It exists in its own universe which one has to discover by himself.
