Jump (Without A Warning)
German singer Katrin Achinger has a very distinctive voice. It's put to good use on her new
solo record. The groovy opener "Talking Mo'Nature" sees her adopt a relaxed, deep tone that
meshes well with the electronic beats. The title track is a slightly exotic sounding pop song
with a dance flavour. "Radio Song" is another moment when Achinger's voice shines. Strings swoop
in and out and gives the song a slight resemblance to the Walkabouts.
"When I find My life" is a highly accomplished cover of a Marianne Faithfull song. Faithfull
is an artist that seems like a kindred spirit to Achinger.
Jump (Without A Warning) is a strong record from an artist who should be better known
all across Europe than she is.
