Swedish electronic-goth princess Karin Park has announced the release of her debut album Highwire Poetry on the May 28. The album is the follow-up to the release of her UK debut EP Tiger Dreams last September but Karin Park is a new name to many outside of Scandinavia, while at home Karin has already picked up two Norwegian Grammy’s and recently supported Azari & III and SBTRKT on their European tour dates. This is definitely looking forward to this album if it sounds anything like her previous release or ‘Reckless’.
Watch the video for the super cool track ‘Tiger Dreams’ below.
Listen to ‘Reckless’, the first single from Highwire Poetry below.
Recorded with producers Barry Barnett and Christoffer Berg (Fever Ray, The Knife), the album explores Karin’s fascination with spirituality, sexuality, power, love and hate. Going up in a remote Swedish town, Karin’s religious upbringing and experiences, including three years in a Japanese missionary school, have provided her with a distance from reality, enabling us to see the world anew through her eyes on Highwire Poetry.
May 5 – Live At Leeds
May 27 – Berlin – Ting Tings support
