Hanna Kristall is an Austrian based singer/songwriter with Mexican and Polish roots. After her first pop/funk- album 'Lady Mechanic' she surprises with a new sound. Her latest single u know is a trap song: bass heavy, spherical and a little bit dark. The track is strongly reminiscent of some songs from The Weeknd and feels a bit like after hours in the club. In August she is releasing her next single ‘La Mexicana’.
Hanna Kristall started her musical path in 2017 with her debut album ‘Lady Mechanic’, that she recorded in the pulsating city of LA and first played live at the legendary "Viper Room" on Sunset Strip. Back in Vienna she took her music on stage at the Donauinselfest, Europe’s largest open-air music festival, where she started making her name as an energy charged live performer.
Strongly inspired by LA’s music scene she felt like her musical identity had only started to awaken and went on to work with Berlin based producer Daniel Karelly. They are now developing her style song by song: electronical sounds, trap beats and reggaeton vibes are combined with Hanna Kristall’s voice, that is sometimes smoky, sometimes angelic, carrying the depth of soul and the lightness of pop within it.
Her next song "La Mexicana" is not surprisingly a reggaeton. While she is honoring her cultural roots with the musical style, Hanna actually sings about feeling unseen, misunderstood and the freedom that comes along with allowing yourself to live your own cultural or any other identity/ies. Her perspective is the one of a generation that is more than ever connected though music and the ‘beat’ of our time. And she strongly believes that the sum of all cultures is much richer and stronger than each culture standing alone.
