Slovakian alt-pop newcomer Karin Ann releases new single ‘for a moment’, via 3am Records. 

The new track sees the artist successfully tackle the emotive pop-ballad, showcasing flawless melodies with an intimate vocal. Unfolding thoughtfully with gentle piano, ‘for a moment’ still maintains Karin Ann’s intoxicating edge, its lyricism lamenting on feeling stuck in times of struggle and pain – “what didn’t kill me never made me stronger, time doesn’t heal anything it just makes you forget”. Sweeping pads and soft electronic kick drums propel the song into the chorus’ release, lyrically, there is also respite from her discomfort – “just for a moment i’ll forget about everything”. 

Karin Ann talks of the meaning behind ‘for a moment’: “Writing it was kind of therapeutic for me, it’s about accepting the bad things you went though, it’s about accepting that healing takes time and that it’s OK to not feel OK and it’s OK to feel like something horrible you went through didn’t make you stronger but actually made life much more difficult, it’s about accepting all that you went though and taking conscious steps towards healing” 

An outspoken advocate of the LGBTQ+ community and minority rights, Karin Ann is quickly carving out her name as a Gen Z icon across Europe and now, the world. Her lyrics delve deep into topics of gender equality, mental health and human rights, as well as unpack the more commonplace inner turmoils of a 20-year-old mind – young love, toxic relationships and insecurities. Karin Ann’s music is the perfect balance of the alternative and the accessible. 

Influenced by musicals, film scores and visionary artists such as Queen, Karin Ann wrote her first song at the age of 14 and was soon discovered by the renowned producers Tomi Popovic and Matt Schwartz(YUNGBLUD, Massive Attack, Halsey).

Karin Ann released her second EP side effects of being human in 2022, and played key support slots for YUNGBLUD, LP, Imagine Dragons and My Chemical Romance as well as Alfie Templeman on his EU tour, additionally showcasing her sound at the UK’s new music discovery festival, The Great Escape. She won Best Music Video at the 2021 Munich Music Video Awards, Discovery of the Year at the 2021 Zebrik Awards in the Czech Republic, and was the face of Spotify’s 2021 EQUAL campaign, that saw her become the first Slovak artist to feature on a giant billboard in New York’s Times Square. Her first solo gig at the end of 2021 was held in Prague and was supported by Amnesty International, from which Karin Ann donated all earnings back into their initiative to support their human rights work.

Her activism saw her pull out a rainbow flagto support the LGBTQ+ community during a live performance on the Polish state broadcaster, TVP. International names have recently followed suit in protesting against the lack of LGBTQ+ rights in parts of Eastern Europe, with ex-Spice Girl, Mel C canceling her scheduled New Year’s Eve concert and the Black Eyed Peas donning rainbow armbands during their performance. “It was very difficult for me to be who I am where I grew up. I just want people to have something to relate to and to feel safe in.” Above personal success, Karin Ann hopes to use her music as a platform to share a message.
