On its second outing “Bittersuess” (= bittersweet), Mina Harker effectively merges the lively feel inherent to German Alternative Rock with powerfully catchy electronic Pop music and a carefully added dark note. The album sports a much more mature sound than the singer’s debut, with arrangements that have been watered down to their very essence for maximum impact. Lyrics are highly emotional, often very direct and, at times, provocative, destined to do more than just scratch the surface. On “Bittersuess”, Mina Harker dances a stirring high wire act, balancing the scales between teenage “Sturm & Drang” and the tackling of big feelings. Versatile vocalist Mina plays out her full spectrum of emotions, alternating between childlike and innocent, steamily lascivious and powerfully raw, making “Bittersuess” a hit-laden summer storm that is bound to go under your skin.
