Meet: Karin Ann - You Make Me Miserable
Get to know the 20-year-old Slovakian wunderkind and her addictively catchy new single
Coming in hot as a new Gen Z idol of Eastern Europe and champion of LGBTQ+ and diversity is Slovakia’s Karin Ann, who in between taking her live shows on the road all around Europe this year has found time to drop her new single, You Make Me Miserable.
An undeniably catchy listen from start to finish, You Make Me Miserable combines high energy pop-punk with nostalgic 80s influences, while lyrically dealing with the painful realisation that an exciting new love may not be what it appears to be.
Featuring a music video that documents Ann’s live shows over the last few months, Karin explains “I didn’t really want to do a narrative music video with this song. It’s very upbeat and fun and I wanted the video to have the same energy. I love the people that support me and this is a little bit of a tribute to them because there are some great moments captured in the video.”
With You Make Me Miserable out now, we got to know Karin a little better - check out the music video and meet Karin Ann below!
