SALOMEA‘s latest offering is a delicate jazzy concoction with experimental flavour.
This time the German/US-American singer, songwriter and composer, together with her brilliant band, takes us on a refreshing journey. The gorgeous instrumentation, which features live played strings, besides the keys and bass, provides a captivating organic warm character to the piece. This time Salomea went for spoken word, contrasting the gentle vocal of the chorus.

We are digital civilians. Somewhere between reflection, comedy and hyperarousal. Shaped, inspired, seduced, manipulated by floods of data – of information – in real-time.

Always ambiguous. “Holiday Season” is a collage full of details and surprises – a stroll through the feeds of our time.
