Sign Libra's "Le Chat" offers a taste of upcoming album "Hidden Beauty"

Latvian artist Sign Libra is set to enthral once again, presenting "Le Chat," the mesmerizing lead single from her upcoming album, "Hidden Beauty". This highly anticipated release is a melodic journey through the realms of feminine nature, creatively brought to life through musical collage, subtle subtext, and enigmatic allusions.

The accompanying video for "Le Chat," co-directed by Melnikova and Sergey Ananyev, exudes an air of New Romantic elegance while adding a touch of feline mystique. This single serves as a tantalizing glimpse into the sonic treasures that await within "Hidden Beauty".

Mark your calendars for November 3, 2023, when "Hidden Beauty" will be released in various formats - vinyl, Japanese import CD, and digital editions. Notably, a portion of the proceeds from this release will be devoted to supporting Coral Guardian, a non-governmental organization dedicated to coral ecosystem preservation.

Sign Libra's journey towards "Hidden Beauty" began in 2019, with the album's essence taking shape in 2020 and early 2021. While crafting the album within a uniquely hermetic environment, she drew inspiration from unconventional activities, resulting in a musical blend that balances New Age influences and cosmic resonance.

"Hidden Beauty" shifts from the expansive spaces of "Sea to Sea," adopting a more intimate "chamber-like" quality that mirrors the album's creation process. Agata's crystalline vocals, a recurring element, further enrich the album's depth and intricacy.

Agata Melnikova, the creative force behind Sign Libra, known for previous releases such as "Closer to the Equator" (Antinote, 2018) and "Sea to Sea" (RVNG Intl., 2020), takes her listeners on an intimate exploration. "Hidden Beauty" is a deftly layered masterpiece, weaving influences from diverse sources including Erik Satie, early Mylène Farmer and Laurent Boutonnat works, and 90s R&B.
