Italian-born songstress MissinCat has shared ‘Mother,’ the latest single from her upcoming album Forces.
‘Mother’ is a collaboration with La Boum Fatale. The feisty five track EP features collaborations with five different artists: Hundreds, Me & My Drummer, Robot Koch, La Boum Fatale and Federico Albanese. The track has been described as “a sound that buries itself deep below the skin. The breadth of her musical tastes, as well as her idiosyncratic vocal abilities, are redolent of Bjork, yet completely untethered to the shackles of any single genre.”
Born in Milan but having lived in Berlin since she started her solo career, Caterina Barbier aka MissinCat has been writing and producing music for film scores: with Producer Martin Todsahrow she worked on the film score of Sönke Wortmann´s movie Schossgebete (2014) and on the Italian-German production Omamamia (2012). She recently wrote and produced the music score for Italian short Film “Fragole” (2017), which is currently being screened at festivals. MissinCat’s two previous albums WOW (2011) and Wirewalker (2015) were well received by critics and fans alike, with her first single ‘Back On My Feet’ becoming a radio hit on Bayern 3, SWR 3, 1Live, Radioeins, Fritz, Sputnik, and reached #8 on Capusstations. The track was also chosen by Nintendo for its 2009 German television campaign.
Speaking of her early beginnings as a musician, MissinCat says: “Music was my passion, I loved singing and I began early writing music. I still remember my first trials of music production with 2 cassette tapes on my ghetto-blaster.”
