Press Play: Crystn Hunt Akron – This Is Love

Crystn Hunt Akron is an interdisciplinary artist between music, new media, fashion, art, dance and performance. The Austrian artist lived and worked for a long time as a singer, performer and composer in Barcelona and toured internationally with the Catalan dance ensemble Sol Pico.

Her first release as a solo musician was the avant-garde pop album Fat Black Spider under the pseudonym Madame Humtata in 2010. She received the renowned Anton Bruckner Composition Scholarship for setting it to music with an 80-piece wind orchestra at the Teatre Calderón d’Alcoi in Alicante.

After further collaborations in the USA, Germany, England, Switzerland and Austria, Crystn Hunt Akron was part of the European Capital of Culture Rijeka 2020 with her electroacoustic composition installation Ebriphon. She performed her current work Die Welt ist ein Scheide at the art fair Parallel Vienna 2021. On her second solo album Lick My Fur, this time as Crystn Hunt Akron, which will be released on Seayou Records in 2022, worlds collide: hyperpop overstatement and new wave minimalism, big pop gestures and serene coolness, club and performance. So also on the first single This Is Love, a self-love anthem, you can’t kill my voice as a mantra and a reminder of your own strength and independence.
