Ana Lola Roman challenges the vision of a renaissance woman; multi-talented she a songstress, video artist and an incredibly charismatic performer. Her new single Jigsaw is no less eclectic, combining a dark meditate soundscape with intelligent social commentary that is contagiously danceable.

The single was recorded and co-produced in NYC with visionary producer and computer game composer Jean Luc Sinclair (Nine Inch Nails, Scissor Sisters). Jigsaw sounds almost tribal as Roman contrasts a hypnotic early nineties riff with a torch song-esque chorus, dissolving into a final emotive cry, ‘They taped my mouth red’, she sings.

She borrows from contemporary classical music and New York minimalism combining a fragile, world-weary almost performance poet tone with the howlings of a later day prophet as she asks us to ‘Go ahead and name your price. And think twice’.

Klutch continues in a similarly intense vein blending Fleetwood Mac-esque guitars with a cinematic piano riff. This is innovative, intelligent pop; and Ana Lola Roman appears as enigmatic as an early Madonna with her slicked down hair and attention grabbing moves.

Jigsaw/ Klutch is set for release on the 27th June 2011. For music and tour dates check out her website.
