Asia i Koty - Miserable Miaow


The debut full-length album of Joanna Kuźma, 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.
Kuźma 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 Kuźma’s distinctive deep voice.  Kuźma’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.

Asia i Koty - Miserable Miaow








'Miserable Miaow' jest jak klasyczna powieść:

Wichrowe wzgórza i bezkresne pustkowia.
Szarość nieba nad szarością wrzosowisk.
Stracone złudzenia powracające echem jak sny.
Niebezpieczne związki: duma, uprzedzenie.
Szkarłatne litery rysowane przez deszcz na ciemnych szybach,
czarny kruk buszujący w zbożu.

No i przede wszystkim rozważna i romantyczna Asia,
która opowiada o tym, co przeminęło z wiatrem,
kiedy skończył się wiek niewinności.

Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Miaow.
