It will always be my not so humble opinion that there aren’t enough theatrical aural masterpieces being created by overwhelmingly powerful vocalists in the 21st century. So, to hear Kat Robichaud’s ethereally visceral latest single “Criminal” was an all too welcome change from the singer songwriters who make the habit of writing restraint into their sound.
Although Kat is largely influenced by artists from the 70’s Glam era, there’s still a strong reminiscence between her work and the likes of Amanda Palmer, Emilie Autumn, and Scarlett Sails. The sultry vocals weave around the soaring, quivering violin pulls which twist around the tentative piano melody which all together makes the perfect platform for Kat’s salaciously arresting vocals.
If you have a penchant for archaically decadent soundscapes you can check out Kat Robichaud’s single Criminal for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now along with the artist’s former singles and albums.
