Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Inka has made a charming debut. The mix of electronic beats and acoustic guitar on “Ecstasy in the Fire” suits the spiritual theme well. Inka’s singing is earthy rather than ethereal which is a nice thing.

“John Lennon Jesus” has an intriguing title. The song is atmospheric and sweet. Inka sings of her musical heroes and seeks guidance from Lennon in particular. The songs organic vibe will endear it to many.

“Crow” rocks out surprisingly and pleasingly. Inka sings sassily. The title track gives me Lenny Kravitz vibes, it’s all shimmery guitars and mysterious words. “She’s way, way out. She moves with the spirit” sings Inka.

The dreamy “Millennium” uses a cello beautifully.

This is a very nice debut.
