KinZana - Live in Kiev!

24/ 12/ 2013

Just before the Christmas KinZana decided to release a video of her emotional ballad “Stay”. The video was shot at Caribbean Club and displays a stage performance of the singer and her band. “Stay” is one of the 5 songs that were included in debute EP “Under Control”.

“Stay” is the slowest song that I have ever written. Initially it meant to be a soundtrack; I never thought it could fit my style of music. My aunt loved the song so much that I decided to try it with the band. When we added guitar and made the last chorus rock loud, we realised that it was a great track fitting very well with other songs! It brought variety to our dynamic programme. We recorded violin and lap steel - they sounded so good in the final mix! I am sure that “Stay” will find its listener” - KinZana

KinZana released official video for the song “Kisses In My Head” in support for her debut EP “Under Control”. Video was directed by Olga Gor and was shot in Kiev, Ukraine.

The video tells a story of a young lady (KinZana) who is getting dressed for a date. She changes clothes trying to find an image that would look most enticing for a man. She finds it - all in black. Just about to go out and… we realise that she… “collects” men. Cute lady is preparing to get another “victim”. “Kisses in my head” acquires a totally different meaning in the end of the video.

“It was a heavy snowfall in Kiev when we shot “Kisses”. It was very cold and windy; the city was stuck in traffic jams. We had to walk a lot in thick snow and ice not to be late. But still, we had great time and fantastic experience. We wanted to create something simple but original, so we came up with this girl-maniac idea. I hope that my fans would like it. I am very grateful to the team ” - KinZana.

KinZana released her debute EP called “Under Control”. The record includes 5 songs:
1. Kisses In My Head
2. Stay
3. I’m Falling
4. Burn Your Mind
5. Under Control

All tracks were produced by Andrei Lobatch and Joe Dochtermann, mixed by Joe Dochterman and mastered by Oliver Dähmcke.

“ I am so excited! We had fantastic time working on a record - a lot of work and a lot of fun. We obtained our authentic sound, I think. It’s powerful pop, pop/rock - a bit aggressive, a bit sexy, a bit gentle and emotional. It’s like me. I think that our songs have positive energy that we want to transmit to the audience. Still, the tracks sound mainstream, so, I hope, we’ll get good radio play” - KinZana.

KinZana announced to release her debute EP called “Under Control” in late Autumn. The EP will consist of 5 songs that would precede to her full length album. The songs that were chosen for a record are: “Kisses In My Head”, “Stay”, “I’m Falling”, “Burn Your Mind”, and “Under Control”.

“It was not easy for us to choose which songs to record for our debute EP. Every song was good in its own way; our survey around friends did not help to pick up winners – different people preferred different songs. So we decided to stick to those 5 which we played for our promo video. I think it’s going to be a great shot. I wonder how they would sound recorded and mixed” - KinZana

KinZana and her band released a promo video. The video was shot at Caribbean Club, which one of the best venues for gigs in Kiev. The video features cuts of 5 songs that demonstrate variations in KinZana’s style: rock - “Under Control” and “Burn Your Mind”, pop - “Kisses In My Head” and “I’m Falling”, and gentle ballad “Stay”.

“We looked at various venues to shoot the promo and the Caribbean Club was the best. Great stage, great lights, great sound. Sound was particularly important for us. We wanted to record the songs live, so that anyone can hear how we sound on stage. In this promo video you hear what was recorded live on the spot. I think it turned out great…
We chose the songs that were a bit different in style to demonstrate the variety of our music. All our songs are pop/rock, but some of them are closer to rock, and others are closer to pop. We even changed clothes that was more appropriate to every song” - KinZana.

“It was a great show! Thank you very much for being with us yesterday! You were terrific! The club was great – excellent sound, very good stage. TrueMan is on the beach, the stage faces the sea, so, I guess, the dolphins enjoyed the show same as you did! Here is the link to our video cut from the concert, featuring “My Limousine”, “Catch Me”, and “You Gonna Get It”. I hope to see you next time!” - KinZana

Today is our show! KinZana - live at «TRUEMAN». Join us!

01/ 07/ 2013

KinZana wrote three instrumental tracks for her programme called «Eclipse», «On the Edge» and «Pulse». All three tracks will be presented during live show at Trueman, Odessa, on 18th of July

“I wanted to write an instrumental which the band would play in the middle of the show. In the meantime I would give my voice some rest and have a glimpse at the mirror. Then we decided to have a powerful intro so that the audience is warmed up a bit before I enter the stage. I ended up with three instrumentals - “Eclipse”, “On The Edge”, and “Pulse”. I hope that we'll have enough time to rehearse them well before the show. I definitely want to record them later, I believe they may become great soundtracks!” - KinZana.

20/ 06/ 2013

KinZana wrote a new song called “I’m Falling”, which she will present during her live show in “Trueman”, Odessa on 18th of July.

“I was working on an instrumental for my show and a vocal tune just popped into my head. I wrote lyrics and eventually former instrumental turned into a new song. I called it «I’m Falling». I was happy that the band liked it and we included it in our show. The song has a dance feel, I can’t wait to present it to my fans.”- KinZana.
