+ Jimmi Ragusa
The two are a match made in Zurich, they’re a genuine team, they write their own songs and their first EP was «Ready To Climb» (2015). Like the title they’ve been persistently doing just that like the wild rose climbing up that stony wall. Their genre is dark pop and it’s the main conduit through which their art connects with you. Loving and seductive, gentle and feminine, the duo performs their highly melodic songs, supported by Max Kämmerling (of Max and the McForelles, Summit and Farber fame), in German and in English. Sometimes with more than a touch of melancholia until a little fiery rebellion stubs your senses. It’s thought provoking stuff if you’re willing to sit still and lose yourself in it. Just a little quiet and a little introspection will do, it’s as simple as that. Also, check out their video for the song «Still». It’s interesting because it’s different, it shows every day folks and their subtle reactions to what they’re listening to. Things are still kind of in the hands of God and their new record company but they intend to bring with them their brand-new latest effort «Speak», an EP that features five new songs.
Steiner & Madlaina. Sometimes it’s time to stop and smell the roses.
