Clashes is the new studio album by Polish singer-songwriter Monika Brodka Which is Expected to release via itunes by this friday may 13th 2016 Digitally. Six years on and the singer-songwriter is back with Clashes, her first English language album and a fine entry point into her world.
Brodka cites Björk and PJ Harvey as reference points – not so much musically (although fans of those artists will find plenty to sink their teeth into here), but for the way they constantly challenged themselves musically, visually, and spiritually between albums.
“I wanted to make the orchestra that would never meet in the same room. So I ended up with church organs and calimba, distorted guitars and an oboe, cellos and a saw” — Brodka
Maybe that’s the reason why brodka can create a music that is not simply a Polish modification of what you are used to in international circles for some time. And that’s her big, decisive advantage.
Friday the 13th. I’ve been waiting for this moment for so long. The last few years of my life were about this album. Thanks to all of you who helped and supported me during this process. I hope Clashes will reach people who have the same kind of sensitivity as mine.
I gave you a little piece of my heart. Bite it!
