about

The draft of this love story was written few years ago, when Katja attended poetry workshops in New York. After returning home to Slovenia she met music producer Pier (RootsInSession) and the first track they produced together, "Twisted Delight“, marks a milestone in this inspiring musical collaboration, showcasing their experimental musical approach in both lyrics and rhythms.
Following the sensual loving scream of first two single releases, "I Love You You Scream“ (2010) and "There Will Be Boys“ (2012), accompanied by thrilling videos directed by Miha Knific, Katja released her album "Twisted Delight" in March 2013 (Celinka Records), which led to MTV Music Awards nomination in the field of Best Adria Act. Rooted in hypnotic rhythms of reggae and dubstep, the record can be described as musically diverse, pulling from a variety of styles, including soul, jazz and r'n'b, evoking sensual thoughts and taking the listener on a musical journey infused with twisted delight and deep calming rhythms ...

Track Name: Twisted Delight
if I in my twisted morning delight
awakened by dreams that bring no pleasure
linger in my bed thinking of lost treasure
the didn'ts, shouldn'ts, coulds and mights

lost in the labyrinth's zone of twilight
all for love that only time will measure
am I cursed to disturb my morning leisure
or am I walking towards the light

I press stop and enter the time machine
you and I and our love are the scene

you and me lying in a sweet embrace
feeling your touch, your skin, your lips, your taste
love bruises still all over me
your scent still under my skin
your eyes evoking my desire
lifting me higher

prayers are left for those who tasted tears
I mourn, I sigh, I howl, I cry, I sing
put on a white dress, light all the candles
to capture the love that still seems endless
Track Name: I Love You You Scream
the night is spreading its amorous thrills
amouring me to death
I'm sinking into a spiral of your mouth
write a long love line on my lips

your lingering scent is kindly inviting
makes me wanna drink from that spring
the voice of your heart is melting my body
whisper love and only love

it's spring and birdsongs flute in the morning
I love you you scream

‘and they shall live happily ever after’
say mendacious fairytales
they mesmerize us, then they are no more
yo quiero beber de tus bocas para siempre

the taste of your skin makes strawberries bitter
lovemaking with you makes the world disappear
you glow, you glow, you glow as black charcoal
whisper love and only love
you glow, you glow, you glow as black charcoal

it's spring and birdsongs flute in the morning
I love you you scream
Track Name: A Primer for Love
let's play a little game now
a game all children play now
it starts start with an A and goes to the B
then to the C … and to the Z
let’s call it a primer for love

A stands for aching, B for bleeding love
C for crazy, D devoted love
E is everlasting, F is first-sight love
G is glorious love praised by skylarks
love stands for Harmony or Intrigue and Jealousy
Karmic connection or Lust made in dark
Mary and Nefertite knew the mystery
they knew the mystery of love

and the game goes on
Obsession, Quest, Possession, Rivalry
sexual Slavery, tenderous Torture
Unision, la Vie en rose scenery
zealots in Zion they love blissfully
Track Name: There Will Be Boys
all dressed up with no place to go
heart thorn apart, tears shed in my soul
body is aching, screaming for soothing licks
here come my fairies giving me some tips

high heels, red lipstick, eye shades and ruby cheeks
eccentric molecules, flavor not to be misses
following music, moving with heavy beats
around the next corner there might be my charming prince

there will be boys, new loves, new joys
there will be boys, new loves, new joys
there will be boys, new loves, new joys
there will be boys, new loves, new joys

deep in the dark night I see a restless deer
haunting me, feeling my energy
down on the floor he hits me like a hurricane
it’s dirty dance time, no time for crying games

bodies melting, crawling like horny snails
colors of the night chasing the blues away
red glows our love and red glows the room
I spit my lava all over you

there will be boys, new loves, new joys
there will be boys, new loves, new joys
there will be boys, new loves, new joys
there will be boys, new loves, new joys
Track Name: Dreams on Canvas
night is of love and secret wishes
stars drop from the luminous sky to make them come true
lovers unite stealing their kisses
but darling, my darling where are you

reveries come and take me to places
to kingdoms of harmony, everlasting bliss
loving you gave left sorrowful traces
marked my heart, my skin, my womb, my entrails

painting you dear on my magic canvas
painting you dear on my magic canvas

come, come my love, and linger till morning
let your colors crawl all over me
whirl with me like Dorothy's house in Kansas
stay on my canvas, forever, my dear
Track Name: Give Yourself
first sight, infatuation
first touch, temptation
first taste, no hesitation
let me hear your body talk

feeling unexpectedly
needing inevitably
moving uncontrollably
let me hear your body talk*

wake up and give yourself
don’t hide and give yourself
let go and give yourself

be my reflection
ignite the action
lead me to reaction
let me hear your body talk

feeling unexpectedly
needing inevitably
moving uncontrollably
let me hear your body talk*

wake up and give yourself
don’t hide and give yourself
let go and give yourself

dost je teme, dej pržgi light show
posluši beat, dej začut ta flow
zaplavej z njim ja tko je prav
dobr feeling u telo je pršel
preliva se zdej od glave do nog
obdaja te vročina, pele te zvok
to ni bolezen k jo morš pozdravt
k ujameš ritem, ne se ustavt

wake up and give yourself
don’t hide and give yourself
let me hear your body talk*

* after verse from “Physical” by Olivia Newton-John
(written by Steve Kipner and Terry Shaddick)
Track Name: Delicious Solitude
sound of the morning breeze entering the room
in the midst of eternity our bodies in the bliss
unfulfilled memory brought us to this shore
so unexpectedly, you're no stranger anymore

lost in you, lost in me, you move so tenderly
the sighs resonate into most catchy melody
wish we could be like this, but the night is almost through
don’t go yet, stay with me in my delicious solitude

sunbeams keep rushing in, daylighting the room
they leave no time for this gorgeous love to bloom
just one more secret kiss that brings madness with the bliss*
don’t go yet, stay with me, in my delicious solitude

* after verse from “Alice” by Tom Waits (written by Kathleen Brennan and Tom Waits)
Track Name: Comes Love
comes a rainstorm
put your rubbers on your feet
comes a snowstorm
you can get a little heat
comes love
nothing can be done

comes a fire
then you know just what to do
blow a tire
you can buy another shoe
comes love
nothing can be done

don't try hiding
cause there isn't any use
you'll start sliding
when your heart turns on the juice

comes a headache
you can lose it in a day
comes a toothache
see your dentist right away
comes love
nothing can be done

comes a heat wave
you can hurry to the shore
comes a summons
you can hide behind the door
comes love
nothing can be done

comes the measles
you can quarantine a room
comes a mousey
you can chase it with a broom
comes love
nothing can be done

that's all, sister
if you ever been in love
that's all, brother
you know what I'm speaking of

comes a nightmare
you can always stay awake
comes depression
you may get another break
comes love
nothing can be done
Track Name: De Colores
de colores, de colores

de visten los campos en la primavera
de colores, de colores

son los pajaritos que vienen de afuera

de colores, de colores
es el arco iris que vemos lucir


y por eso los grandes amores

de muchos colores me gustan a mí

canta el gallo, canta el gallo

la gallina, la gallina

los pollitos, los pollitos 

y por eso los grandes amores
de muchos colores me gustan a mí


de colores, de colores
brillantes y finos se viste la aurora
de colores, de colores
son mil reflejos que el sol atesora

de colores, de colores
es el diamante que vemos lucir

y por eso los grandes amores

de muchos colores me gustan a mí

canta el gallo, canta el gallo

con el quiri, quiri, quiri, quiri, quiri

la gallina, la gallina

con el cara, cara, cara, cara, cara
los pollitos, los pollitos 

con el pío, pío, pío, pí, pí
y por eso los grandes amores
de muchos colores me gustan a mí
