“New Woman” is the name of the latest LP by Hamburg-based singer-songwriter Lùisa – released a full six years after her last album. A long time. Many experiences, adventures and possibly broken hearts later, the years truly manifest themselves anew in her songs. Indie here gives a hand to the charming possibilities of pop music and both dance into a world of coming to terms with the past and at the same time new hope, looking completely into the singer’s inner self. Gorgeous up-tempo pieces, a bit of melancholic wistfulness, brash synthpop anthems and a few retro 80s sounds later, we too are somehow reborn from root of hair to tip of toe. “Come around and feel me, come around,” Lùisa sings to us. Follow the call to Palais Sommer!
