A year after the release of her EP “Moisissure” on Kakakids Records & 1000 Balles, we discover her album “Scirocco” which bears its name: Cristina sings in French, English, Italian and Sicilian dialect, stories that feel the hassle in Palermo, a smell of sweat mixed with spices.
Her resolutely punk arrangements blend the tenderness of her accent with incisive synthesizer rhythms, a velvet hand behind the switchblade.
Cristina gives form to the inconveniences of human relationships that overwhelm us: sorrow, black moods… but paradoxically manages to make something very beautiful out of it.
An acidic and bewitching remedy that heals the pain!
