Indie suits the Spanish singer and musician, Zahara very well as she is able to make the album she wants with PUTA (Bitch). Zahara released her eighth album, which is the fourth on her own label. I don’t forsee her going backward with the success she is having on her own.
Hopefully, this review will not be banned because of the name she chose for its title, PUTA. The album begins much differently than you we have heard her in the past. The first song, “flotante” (Floating) is bursting with industrial garage band sounds. Her vocals as she screams the chorus remind me of my wife’s favorite band, Sleater-Kinney. I love this angry chick rock sound on Zahara.
What we see with Zahara’s album is a combination of atmospheric pop, angry chick rock, and acoustic ballads. There are a lot of great songs on this album that I spent a week with this album on repeat. It is good as background music while you are doing other things but if you put on a pair of headphones, you really hear everything it has to offer. I think my favorite song has turned out to be “MERICHANE” (which has no translation).
A while back, we reviewed Zahara’s album Santa and I feel that the two albums are a world apart. I look forward to checking out the two albums in between to see if we hear that slow progression of how she got all the way to “bitch”. It will be a fun process, I hope.
We’d like to hear what you think of the album. Check it out and leave us a comment below or on our social media accounts like Twitter.
