Native-born Austrian, Tanja Frinta – under her real name – has lived in Sweden, Spain and Belgium and is now treading upon Paris and Tokyo where she has written and produced Warped Caress collaborating with local musicians, notable Japanese band Lamp and her French live band including members of Le Colisée and Las Aves.
For her first single, the sublime title ‘Loverboy’ comes out as a big urban
spleen, released in a space made of asphalt and artificial paradises. Groups
like Hooverphonic or even Portishead play around this throbbing softness
that is Loverboy, splashing about in the electronic lounge of the 90s.
The opener, ‘Alien Lady’ features a flute-driven solo backed up by a funky
guitar riff that then transitions into a tropical beat and Tanja narrating the
story of feeling a stranger in a big city, not understanding the social codes and
clues ‘I don’t speak the language in the way that you know’ while Worth to
you is a dreamy, glitched-out hypnotic track which maintains an edge of
mysterious sexuality and her signature sense of intimate detachment.
If the atmosphere coming out of Lomboy’s work can be sometimes felt as
prude and even shy, it certainly does not intend to hide with embarrassment
the aphrodisiac scent that permeates it. On the contrary, this modesty
perceived in the interpretation and in the production sensually envelops the
different compositions, and imparts to this guilty pleasure the feeling of a
stolen kiss. Warped Caress brings us to vertiginous heights and takes us into
abyssal depths throughout the five tracks. This suggests at times a diegetic
representation of this erotic world seen through the insolent prose and at
other times a mimetic representation where each instrument plays an
important part in every story told.
