Masha Qrella: New Album!

"Keys" shows Masha Qrella elegantly fusing disco-pop and songwriting, walking a fine line between laconic coolness and passionate uptempo melancholia. There is a new straightforwardness & Masha puts more emphasis on her voice and songwriting. Every single song on "Keys" shows an immediate and open-hearted quality. With this record, Masha Qrella creates a very distinct version of pop music, subtly reminding you of her love for Elliott Smith, Neil Young or Metronomy, but always staying true to herself. Join her on this emotional dancefloor.

Keys is out now. Order your copy from

Masha Qrella: Boys Don't Cry / Fishing Buddies

After recording some killer cover versions of Bryan Ferry or Frederick Loewe, Masha now sings The Cure's second hit 'Boys Don't Cry'. After more than 30 years of heavy Indie-Disco rotation, you might be sick of that song, but Mashas version is just too clever: First she adds a rhythmic Kelis-citation ('Trick Me'). This also brings (even more) gender twist here, as it may also be seen as a comment on Robert Smiths elaborated moaning. Later she simply skips that momentum, that wants to make you sing along – by freezing the song. On the flip, the guitar work of James McNew (Yo La Tengo, Dump) guitar adds some gentle funk to Masha's recent single 'Fishing Buddies'. There is a brandnew video for Boy's Don_t Cry, too!

7inch comes with silkscreened cover & is limited to 251 copies. Available exclusive via!
