Karin Ann Shares Magical Debut Album ‘through the telescope’

Tune in now...

Slovakian alt-pop voice Karin Ann has shared her magnetic debut album ‘through the telescope’ in full.

The songwriter was going through a dark spell in her life, when a chance encounter brought collaborator Benjamin Lazar Davis into her life. The two immediately hit it off, and this creative relationship seemed to unlock something deep inside her.

New album ‘through the telescope’ is a wonderful selection of songs, ricocheting between the wistful magic of Mazzy Star, say, and the opaque Americana of Okkervil River – indeed, the latter’s Will Graefe contributes to the record.

At its core, ‘through the telescope’ is an alt-pop record, with Karin Ann relishing melody at its most direct. At times theatrical, her performances are gripping and revelatory – Karin comments…

Before I even considered making this album, I was at a breaking point where I seriously thought about giving up music due to my declining health. Benjamin, my collaborator on the album, unexpectedly entered the scene, and later came Will. The two of them sparked this whole new wave of creativity, and the album turned out even better than I imagined.

This project was a labour of love, free from external pressures, allowing us to craft a narrative that reflects our shared artistic integrity. I’m so full of pride as I prepare to share this deeply personal piece of work with the world, and I’m hopeful that it resonates with listeners on a profound level.

Tune in now.
