10 APRIL 2014 - MADEMOISELLE KAREN /DK/, PETER J. BIRCH /PL/
Mademoiselle Karen follow up on a colorful debut album with a sharp produced 2nd album about being lost – and found. “Comme Les Garçons” is a result of long time touring with the top selling band Czeslaw Spiewa. It's an explosion of languages and music in a delicate and surprising form. “Comme Les Garçons” consist of 11 songs in French, Polish, English and Danish created with a mixed audio universe, where everything is allowed and nothing omitted. It's a playground of music genres and languages in a tight produced form.
Life sometimes takes you by surprise. It turns everything upside down, and you have to cope with a new way of walking, talking and breathing. The past years the 4 musicians in Mademoiselle Karen has travelled around the world being part of the successful Polish/Danish band Czeslaw Spiewa. This adventure has given many new inputs and inspirations, and also it has given form to the multi colored project Mademoiselle Karen. The atmosphere of postmodern pop chansons broken by danceable house rides on the one hand and silent melancholia on the other. Mademoiselle Karen takes it all in and then sing it out again with a strong voice full of commitment and a vision to learn by singing.
Mademoiselle Karen became an acknowledged band especially in Poland with the debut album "Attention" (released 22.02.2010 on Mystic Production/vme DK). The album got very positive reviews and a big interest from radio and media. Mademoiselle Karen has toured all over Poland and was invited to play at Francophonic Festival 2010 in Poland, Start! Festival 2010 in Denmark and Nordischer Klang in Germany 2012.
On stage Mademoiselle Karen is full of energy and playful attitude. It's music without compromise and a great passion for the good melody and rhythm, that leaves you with a craving for more. With the release of “Comme Les Garçons” the band is very exited to present the new songs live.
