Style: Soul Pop

We’re impressed with the potential of this Slovakian duo, whose Detroit, L.A. and Prague recorded songs include “after war,” which delivers lush, high-quality synth strings propelled by a funky drum beat, a jazzy bass, and Kristin’s uniquely soulful voice whose accented English comes across as more of a plus than a minus. Subject matter is persistently sad and downbeat, with Kristin expressing feelings of loss and struggles to survive, as in the song “cry.” The sombre tone continues with “alone” where, before the finale’s uptempo beat kicks in, Kristin demonstrates her impressive vocal range of highs and lows. Just terrific. Can she sing a happy, jubilant song? Well, that’s for Lash & Grey to figure out.
