This European release of Katharina Nuttall’s first two albums was awarded with The German Record Critics’ Award “Jahrespreis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik 2009”.
The motivation was: The most beautiful flowers often flourish invisibly. Thanks to the sensitive repertoire work of the excellent music distributor company Cargo Records, German music lovers have the pleasure of getting to know Katharina Nuttall.
Cherry Flavour Substitute’, the second album of the young Swedish musician, released on her own label Frances Records, is a great success. On the one hand, it is melancholic, dark chamber pop, on the other hand, the eleven songs of the album glitter almost cinemascope-like orchestrated.
Nuttall’s voice sounds fragile and elfin, but at the same time it has the energy to be a match for stars such as Beth Gibbons (Portishead), Susan Janet Ballion (Siouxsie & The Banshees) or Polly Jean Harvey easily. An exquisite musical treasure, brilliant in every sense.
