MY INTERVIEW WITH KRIGARÈ

Starting off 2017 with a bang, KRIGARÈ is definitely one of the greatest singer-songwriter’s to come onto the scene. Previously releasing music under Kennedy Noel, Krigaré has proved to be a strong presence and a great change from her previous persona. With songs such as ‘Falling Apart’ making me want to punch the air and ‘Sleeping Awake’ taking my breath away, I knew it was time to finally have a catch up with Kennedy/Krigaré to see how everything was going and find out more about that EP.

Krigarè – Sleeping Awake. Single Review

How great is this girl? Bringing her third some under the Krigarè moniker, Kennedy brings another fantastic addition to her collection with this banger!

‘Sleeping Awake’ is surely a pop-influenced track compared to the first two songs, but this still hits hard. What I always enjoy about Kennedy is that she doesn’t shy away from singing about her experiences, this track is brimming with personal nods to her own life and what she has been through.

I never tire from hearing Kennedy’s music. Truly one of the nicest musicians on the planet and a soul which you need to hear as she pushes the boundaries of music by crafting these brilliant tunes. Hopefully we aren’t too far away from the eventual E.P. due for release later this year.

Final rating: 9/10

Krigarè – Falling Apart

Krigarè (AKA Kennedy Nöel) is starting a new chapter in her music career and 2017 looks set to be great. A few years ago, I got the opportunity to interview this talented young lady and I could only wish her all the best in her journey. It was around the release of her ‘Cross-Over’ EP, the pop-dance title track was very punchy and addictive. In fact, it was one of my favourite songs of 2015. Then I found out that young Kennedy was making music before she reached her teens, this girl has got so much talent.

‘Falling Apart’ is Kennedy’s first release as Krigarè. ‘Falling Apart’ is definitely a more grown up offering from this singer/songwriter. The emotion is high in this track, the tune pulls you in with an almost Celtic tone and the echoed vocals over the song adds to the eerie ambience. It is different to the tunes you would normally listen to, but that’s what you need now and again. Krigarè has stated that the narrative of her upcoming EP is about her inspiring story of surviving two bouts of cancer. The title ‘Falling Apart’ can be seen as she asks herself about her own mortality, describing some dark moments using the medium of music.

I know I said it before, but I honestly think this girl deserves so much success. To see her stories inspire such breathtaking music is worth a few plays already. Does she let what has happened to her bring her down? No! She has fought through it all and has fought “to see the horizon” and has done that so well. Also, did you know her name means Warrior in Swedish? Krigarè is truly an inspiration.

I was so happy that Kennedy/Krigarè and I got back in touch and I look forward to reviewing her future tracks. From this first taster in the new direction, I think I may have a favourite for 2017 already! This girl has a heart of gold!
