The Black Cat Neighbourhood Out August 21
“Fallulah will surely join the ranks of Bat for Lashes, Jenny Wilson and Marina & the Diamonds, as part of the new emerging wave of proud, bold and adventurous female pop artists.” – MTV
Danish avant-pop artist Fallulah (aka Maria Apetri) has announced the US release of her debut full-length The Black Cat Neighbourhood on August 21 with MBM Records. Hailing from the isle of Amager, Fallulah was born to a Danish mother and Romanian choreographer father, and spent much of her childhood performing with gypsy dancing tours throughout the Balkans and Eastern Europe.
Tinged with a hint of folklore, her vibrant pop songs have become an overnight sensation in Denmark, and continue to gain momentum throughout Europe. She first made a name for herself when single ‘Out of It’ was featured on Danish national television, and subsequently became the #1 download on Danish iTunes for several weeks. She then toured Europe extensively over the next year, including a set of lauded performances at the Isle of Wight in UK, Roskilde Festival in Denmark, and By:Larm in Norway. Those who caught her incendiary performances at SXSW ’12 and CMJ ’11 got a sneak preview of what’s to come.
The Black Cat Neighbourhood is littered with Fallulah’s bold vocals and quirky, rich instrumentation, including ukulele, glockenspiel, and folky strings. Her genre-bending pop has won praise from Billboard and Hollywood Reporter, with MTV raving, “Fallulah creates pop music with ﬁnesse, integrity and a ﬁery, hot-tempered feel of Central Europe.” Mark Ronson played “I Lay My Head” on East Village Radio and Fallulah performed during an on-air interview with Larry Flick at Sirius Radio. The remix of “I Lay My Head” by Shook (above) also went to the Top 5 on The Hype Machine. Fallulah will return to the US this fall in support of The Black Cat Neighbourhood. Dates to be announced shortly.
