Czarina takes a bold step forward and outward in her flourishing synthwave career with a powerful new space ballad, “Til the Last Star.” The nuanced dreamwave track is both beautiful and chilling, guided by an impassioned and unmistakable vocal delivery from Czarina that is her finest yet.
Enjoy the exclusive premiere of the track right here and look for the worldwide release tomorrow.
In a notable shift away from the rock-driven songs on Czarina’s full-length debut, “Til the Last Star” dives into a spellbinding synthscape whose gentle rhythm and crystalline textures provide a perfect backdrop to the striking vocal lead. The song’s lyrical content explores a journey to find true love, a concept that is artfully accented and given epic proportions thanks to the music’s outer space theme. It’s Czarina’s most intimate and personal offering to date, and it further clarifies the wide range of her songwriting abilities.
Czarina is a compelling and unique figure within synthwave culture, combining her years of experience in both fashion and music into a new project that is equal parts audio and visual. Her music is bolstered by an experimental mindset, and although she’s never afraid to explore her influences in innovative ways, her creations are balanced by the deliberation of an accomplished artist who holds a clear vision of her goals.
Despite being relatively new to synthwave, Czarina has quickly established a large fanbase and found considerable success with her pioneering full-length offering, Painted Holograms, available now through RetroSynth Records. The Brooklyn-based artist is just getting started, and “Til the Last Star” is indicative of her aspirations toward increasingly epic creations.
