Nick Greenleaf Mournful yet triumphant, ecstatic yet striving. All around brilliant. Been playing this a bunch since it dropped. I can’t remember the last time a new release hooked me like this. Favorite track: Celestial Satellites.

There is something so magically captivating in the music here that I can't even find words to describe it. The ancient and the modern mix together in a perfect harmony. Hypnotic and blissful. Favorite track: Atomic: Ad Initivm.

It is no coincidence that you and I are here Charting our path in the stars ever since Moving mountains The sun and the moon Conspired a way Soaring comets Planetary alignments Paved a way I want to share each night with you As offering to the gods I want to share each night with you And reach the furthest star Consecrated Bodies intertwined Consecrated Love immortal and divine We have waited so long for this moment to come Our wandering souls could rest Now that we’re found Constellations Up in the sky Shine the way Benedictions Cosmic incantations Burning twin flames I want to share each night with you As offering to the gods I want to share each night with you And reach the furthest star Consecrated Bodies intertwined Consecrated Love immortal and divine

Water was running, children were running You were running out of time Under the mountain, a golden fountain Were you praying at the Lares shrine? Ohh, oh, your city lies in dust Ohh, oh, your city lies in dust, my friend We found you hiding, we found you lying Choking on the dirt and sand Your former glories and all the stories Dragged and washed with eager hands Ohh, oh, your city lies in dust Ohh, oh, your city lies in dust Ohh, oh, your city lies in dust Ohh, oh, your city lies in dust, my friend Ohh Ohh Water was running, children were running We found you hiding, we found you lying Water was running, children were running We found you hiding, we found you lying Ohh, oh, your city lies in dust Ohh, oh, your city lies in dust, my friend Hot and burning in your nostrils Pouring down your gaping mouth Your molten bodies, blanket of cinders Caught in the throes Ohh, oh, your city Ohh, oh, your city Ohh, oh, your city Lies Lies in dust

Lost Lands 05:08
Step out this gilded cage Drive thru uncharted landscapes How far can one see  With open, unclouded eyes The heat of the desert's upon me Letting the wind direct me  Bracing myself  Right in the face of all calamity Ah Eh Bare the torch and run with me Fan the flames tonight with me Oh, in the face of calamity Break, oh, break the chains Break, oh, break the chains Hold my hand firmly Clutching hope and glory In the face of calamity Break, oh, break the chains Break, oh, break the chains Hold tight Enter the circle of fire Hold tight Blaze the trail in the end o' night Hold tight  Enter the circle of fire Cleanse the sins of our fathers Break the chains  Let us enter These lost lands Bare the torch and run with me Fan the flames of glory Now begins the journey Crossing all deep waters Clutch all hope and glory Grab those horns firmly Run in the face of calamity Traversing these barren lands Ah Eh Ah Eh Ah Eh

I can feel your breath filled with Unspoken words Meet me where we merge in Two different worlds   Hush those whispers The truth is in your eyes Leave all doubts behind Let all fears subside What would I give What would I give For a lifetime For a lifetime For a lifetime To be with you What would I give What would I give For a lifetime For a lifetime For a lifetime To share with you   I'd choose you I promise you I'd choose you If you want me to I'd choose you I promise you If you want me to I'll be with you What would I give What would I give I'd choose you I promise you I'd choose you If you want me to What would I give What would I give For a lifetime For a lifetime For a lifetime To be with you What would I give What would I give For a lifetime For a lifetime For a lifetime Til the last star dies Til the last star dies Til the last star dies

about

Galicia, Spain-based New York native and dark electro artist, CZARINA (styled as C Z A R I N A on all platforms) unveils most awaited sophomore LP, Arcana, under German gothic label darkTunes Music Group. Cosmic, mystical, yet also feral and ferocious in nature, Arcana (meaning “mysteries” or “secrets” in Latin) is a celebration of epic proportions of nature, life, love, wisdom, faith, survival, consciousness, truth, the laws of the universe, and one’s own completion. The record showcases the vast dynamics and full range of CZARINA’s songwriting, composition, production, and artful lyricism, and has been meticulously crafted to mirror and articulate the mysterious depths and facets of the artist’s mind and spirit.

Each track in Arcana harnesses an eclectic mix of dark electro, synthpop, orchestral baroque pop, gothic new age, and progressive rock into one, cohesive and thoughtfully designed sonic signature that is both ethereal and heavy-hitting, and has become CZARINA’s very own hallmark sound. The album embraces mysticism and starts with the progressive rock and new age number “Celestial Satellites” - a ritualistic call on all forces of nature and the cosmos, featuring thunderous drums, a medley of tribalistic gothic chants and arpeggiated guitars against a backdrop of symphonic synths which all create the marquee soundscape throughout the record. Her critically-acclaimed, chamber-infused synthpop single, “Wonderland,” follows as a special ode to her newly adopted home in Galicia, which she refers to as her “sacred wonder” and sanctuary of magic and mysteries. The electrically-charged industrial, gothic club hit "Atomic: Ad Initivm” surges in like a nuclear dynamite, followed by the monstrous art rock number “Excelsior” which takes listeners to new heights with tantric polyrhythms, odd meters and eclectic vocal, guitar and drum performances by the artist rendered into one continuous, giant crescendo crashing wave upon wave. CZARINA takes audiences further into a world of magic and spirit with the delicate Winter Solstice offering, “The Fox’s Wedding” — an organic and symphonic orchestration of wondrous love and spiritual union only the universe could conspire to design as inspired by East Asian folklore the track was named after. Then Arcana takes a very mysterious turn with the baroque and chamber electro “Medusa” - a dark incantation inspired by the famous Greek myth that calls for all hidden truths to be unveiled. CZARINA pays homage to gothic icon Siouxie Sioux and covers the dark, apocalyptic vision in “Cities In Dust” with cinematic orchestral arrangements, giving the darkwave classic her own signature imprint. The record reaches its summit and enters post-apocalyptic realms with “Lost Lands.” Inspired by Denis Villeneuve’s Dune remake, “Lost Lands” rumbles in its thunderous, progressive metal treatment, cinematic soundscapes, and valiant lyricism that harkens bravery in the face of calamity. The record finishes off in a cosmic trance with a final journey to outer space in “Til The Last Star: Cosmos” - a sentimental, spacewave pop ballad about traversing the ends of the universe for a chance for true love.

All songs in Arcana were written, composed, arranged, performed, recorded and produced by CZARINA in her home in Galicia, except for “Cities In Dust” which was originally written by Siouxie Sioux, Budgie and Steven Severin. Von Hertzog (VHxRR, Information Society) of The Social Club (Reading, PA) served as Co-Producer, Mixing, and Mastering Engineer, providing additional production input and final touches to finesse the large dynamics of CZARINA’s new sound. The album art and all visuals were created by DeadlyKawaii and CZARINA together.

Arcana is available as a special Limited Deluxe Edition Compact Disc featuring all 9 tracks on Bandcamp and darkMerch.com, plus a bonus instrumental track of “Lost Lands.” The digital release and is available for download and streaming on all platforms. In celebration, the record release is accompanied by a special limited distribution of CZARINA’s very own branded Smoked Black Rosé Cider also called ARCANA, handcrafted and distributed by Skald Cellars (PA) in the US only. The record will also be followed up with a series of new music videos which will be released throughout the year under darkTunes Music Group.

CZARINA is Vero Faye Kitsuné, an award-winning electronic and rock musician, producer, songwriter, filmmaker, visual artist, creative director, designer and an esteemed fashion industry veteran originally from New York City. Known for her multi-disciplinary approach, avant-garde conceptual narratives and elevated aesthetic, CZARINA combines transcendentalism and new age mysticism with her love for futurist culture, cybernetics, biomechanics, art and ancient history, mythology, folklore, high fashion and the discipline that comes with her Budo martial arts training.
