If there is an artist to watch out for over the next year, it’s Krigare. Between her eclectic visuals and unique ability to morph her experiences into art, Krigare delivers straight from the heart and makes that known throughout her latest album release, ‘Self-Titled’. Here’s our track-by-track thoughts.
Kicking off with the first track, “Silhouette”, Krigare slowly eases into herself over instrumentals that mimic the haunting essence of Bjork as she takes listeners through a candid lyrical journey through her season of darkness that she is aching to overcome. The second track, “Heights”, showcases the rising and falling stages of emotions that Krigare is experiencing as she lyrically recognizes that she is in the beginning stages of the growth that she knows will come as a musician. “This Time” is the third track that takes the album for a shift into a sensual blast of confidence that is laced in embodiment that is dripping with soul.
The fourth track, “Falling Apart”, slows it down into a desolate musicial soundscape that creates the feeling of an individual clinging to the remnants of a dying relationship. “Royal Blood” is the fifth track that will stir up feelings within a listener that is experiencing the journey of self-love as Krigare makes it known that she is just fine on her own. The sixth track, “If I Just Wake Up”, is placed into the album exactly where it belongs and subliminally speaks of the fluctuating states that a human being experiences during a season of loss and release. “Sleeping Awake” is the seventh track that eases into the bones of listeners as Krigare picks at her scars and lyrically creates the feeling of unease when it comes to acceptance. The eighth track, “Deep End”, begins with some of the most potent lyrics that you’ll hear this year as Krigare shamelessly expresses her desire to bury the remaining pieces of a relationship that puzzles her idiosyncratic mind. “Destiny” is the ninth track that is full of cryptic energy as Krigare lyrically twists her previous thoughts of destiny into her current feelings which are full of healthy spite. The eleventh track, “Sparks”, lyrically creates a metaphorical tale of rebirth that has come through reflection. Closing out with “Let It Go (Knight Remix)”, Krigare lyrically speaks to her subconscious in a beautiful and revealing way that speaks of her maturity when it comes to her ability to keep her back straight in a season of detachment.
Krigare is a unique human being who is a star in the making. If you’re a fan of fellow musicians such as Purity Ring, Grimes and iamamiwhoami, then keep an eye on the ride ahead for Krigare on Soundcloud.
