Ziemba founds label, release "LALA" single, tours Europe

We were among the first blogs to draw attention towards NYC's Ziemba bravely decadent atmospheres and simple but stylish visuals. We are glad to report that the young lady has been keeping at it: Concept EP 'LALA' (produced by Jeremiah Meece, streaming below) is the first official release on Ardis Multiverse, the artist's new multisensory imprint, and reflects a musical departure for Ziemba, compared to recent LP Hope is Never. In a setting that's as dark, but more consistently electronic, Ziemba tells the story of "a succubus [...] who lives in a cave and sequesters herself to protect the world from her capacity for destruction." Ziemba also announced a fall European tour. Recommended for those who miss Nico. - photo by Ben Grad.


Ziemba announces debut LP 'Hope is Never' + US tour

We've been covering NYC's mysterious songwriter with experimental tendencies Ziemba (aka René Kladzyk) since early 2014, raving about her song/video combo for single "Phantom See." From what we can tell, the "nouvelle femme fatale" had very little coverage in the major music blogs so far, but things are about to change. She just announced the release of her debut album "Hope is Never," which mostly gathers songs she had posted on her Soundcloud profile during the last two, impressively prolific years. The album will include "Phantom See" and also "El Paso" (streaming below), one of the most upbeat track in her repertoire, also featured in 2015 EP "A Pure Mirror and a Damn Prison." Check out also the album minimalistic opener "It Curts Itself." Ziemba will be kicking off a US tour at Trans Pecos on May 29th. - photo by Megan Mack


Ziemba unveils new video for "Phantom See" + plays Cake Shop on 11.02

We noticed (and blogged about) Brooklyn's Ziemba and her track "Phantom See" this past April and were impressed with her Femme Fatale attitude and that beautiful, sparse song. The young lady (aka René Kladzyk) obviously didn't shy away from that observation, delivering this remarkable video (for that same track) that doubles down on dark seduction and comfirms her confidence - also in front of a video camera. You can catch her live at Cake Shop on Sunday November 2nd at 8.30pm.


NYC femme fatale Ziemba releases debut EP at Cameo on 04.15

Since the days of The Velvet Underground's 'Banana' album, NYC has been setting the standard in the rockn'n'roll femme fatale department, but admittedly hasn't yet produced a presence as charismatic and powerful as Nico. From the tracks on her debut EP - and the retro press pictures coming with it - Brooklyn-based performance artist and vocalist Ziemba (aka René Kladzyk) may have the presence and the talent to fill this void - although the first thing we'd like to hear from her is better recorded music, in particular more attention to details in the vocal department. Like the German chantause from the 60s, Ziemba isn't afraid of sadness and sparsness, and single 'Phantom See" is a tasteful tune that might entrance fans of David Sylvian, Brian Eno, John Cale and other semi-experimental luminaries. Ziemba will celebrate her debut EP release at Cameo on April 15. - Photo by Miriam Fanger
