C ⚡ A R I N A - “Medusa”
New #baroquepop Single and Music Film OUT NOW ---⇻ https://smarturl.it/CZAmedusa
Galicia, Spain-based American synth and electronic artist CZARINA (styled as C Z A R I N A on all platforms) unveils her latest Darkwave and Baroque Pop Single, Medusa. Based on the ancient Greek mythology about the legendary serpent-haired gorgon, Medusa is a song about time eventually unraveling all hidden truths from beginning and the end - “the Alpha and Omega.” According to the myth, Medusa was once a beautiful maiden wrongfully punished by the warrior goddess Athena after the ocean-god Poseidon defiled Medusa in Athena's temple. Athena transformed Medusa’s beautiful hair into horrible snakes and her gaze that turns men into stone. Throughout history, Medusa has been associated with monstrosity which CZARINA sings with cynicism, “Cuz I’m the predator, I’m predator,” even though she’s the true victim in the ancient myth. In today’s culture, Medusa has been retransformed into a powerful symbol of feminine rage which the track celebrates.
Written, arranged, performed, fully produced and recorded by CZARINA, Medusa is an eclectic mix of ‘80s goth and darkwave, heavy-hitting club banger soundscapes mixed with ethereal qualities of a simulated chamber orchestra and a full-scale choir performance by the artist. Von Hertzog of The Social Club (Reading, PA), provided additional atmospheric sound designs, along with mixing and mastering. All of CZARINA’s cover art and visuals are conceptualized and created by her and her husband, the artist DeadlyKawaii. Medusa and its accompanying music video will be available across all platforms on December 2, 2021. It is the third single from CZARINA’s highly-anticipated sophomore full-length record, ARCANA, due early 2022
