FORCES is the new EP from Berlin-based, Italian-born indie-pop artist MissinCat. It includes the recently released single ‘Made of Stone’ produced by Robot Koch, which has already racked up over 250 thousand plays on Spotify. In addition to garnering support from tastemakers Kaltblut Magazine and Indie Shuffle, MissinCat has performed at Berlin Sessions, shared stages with the likes of Incubus and Pearl Jam at Heineken Jammin Festival 2007 and was selected as the supporting act for Amy Winehouse’s 2008 Germany Tour.
Born in Milan but having lived in Berlin since she started her solo career, Caterina Barbier aka MissinCat. MissinCat’s two previous albums WOW (2011) and Wirewalker (2015) were well received by critics and fans alike, with her first single ‘Back On My Feet’ becoming a radio hit across German radio and the track was also chosen by Nintendo for its 2009 German television campaign.
“Forces” is a thrilling musical journey that MissinCat has created, together with some of the most exciting music projects in Germany and abroad. The EP consists of five tracks with five different artists: Hundreds, Me & My Drummer, Robot Koch, La Boum Fatale and Federico Albanese. Every single track is an exciting collaboration and has its own unique story. Different worlds and musical styles collide and bring energy and life into the music, but at the same time staying true to her own unique style. Each track remains recognisable as a MissinCat song, creating a consistent, soulful sonic landscape throughout the EP.
Speaking of the EP, MissinCat says:
“It was important to learn how to lose control. I let go to see what happens. You have to keep looking at yourself from a distance, especially during the creative process. Working in the studio, this means trying different versions and arrangements to find out what movements and developments are possible within each song.”
