Intricately woven amongst breathy harmonies and a soul-tinged splendour, You Can’t Bear My Love is the result of a heartbreak and yearning in the face of longed-for love. KOSCHKA’s raw, smokey vocals combined with earthy percussion and subtle brass moments are undeniably encapsulating throughout.
KOSCHKA elaborates, “this song is expressing the specific feeling of waiting and understanding a love without having any confirmation of it really existing, or knowing if it there is a future. For me, it’s one of the most important songs on my upcoming album – it’s real, it’s intimate. It needs time to develop.”
KOSCHKA – aka Edita Karkoschka – is a singer, composer and music producer currently based in Berlin. KOSCHKA fronted the German-Dutch indie-pop band NAUSICA until the end of 2019 and has played concerts all over Europe until 2020, when she decided to fully dedicate herself to her solo project KOSCHKA. In 2018, KOSCHKA released her first single on the label Part du Decor Records with the beautifully minimalist track ‘The Flood‘, followed by a second release of the song ‘Abendstern’; her first adaptation of a classical piece with the original title ‘Abendstern D 806’. Previous supporters include the likes of Atwood Magazine, Soundsphere Magazine, The Revue, Get In Her Ears and With Guitars.
In November 2022, KOSCHKA released the first single ‘Tiefes Leid‘ from her upcoming debut album, due to be released in Autumn 2023. While KOSCHKA is not a classically trained musician, she works extremely intuitively and manages to combine her classical interests with her love of PJ Harvey and experimentation to create something gently genre-defying.
