Sabrina Petrini: “Fucking In Love” – distinct vocal quality and lyrical mastery set in a sultry bed of mesmerizing music

Sabrina Petrini started her journey as a performer in Helsingborg, Sweden, where she owned and ran a dance school at the age of 16. She managed to write, direct and produce a musical by the time she was 19 and had a rock band under her name together with her brother Donatello Petrini. Sabrina is currently completing work in the studio with producer Gabe Lopez (James Brown, Jim Verraros, Universal) and Italian DJ/Producer Dechard, who are co-producing her solo EP expected to be released during the winter of 2015.

sabrina-petrini-400The first single off Sabrina Petrini’s solo EP, “Fucking In Love” was released February 2015. There is both a piano version and an EDM version of the single available on iTunes. “Fucking In Love” is one the most powerful and beautiful singles produced by a Swedish-born artist in a long while. And considering how prolific and consistently superb Swedish pop music artists are, this is a great achievement. Sabrina’s torch song delivery on the piano version and then mixed with all of the ‘big” modern sounds of today, on the EDM version goes right for the heart….and the throat.

Make no mistake about it, this young woman is a true artist and if she never makes another single or album, she has already delivered to the listening public, a song of truth, beauty and depth, through the medium of popular music. This has got a great sound with a melody and lyrics that will stay in your mind long after the strains of the last notes have ended.

Though she has already received many endowments, Sabrina needs no awards or accolades here, because the real winners are the ones who will play, listen and get lost in the imagery she weaves all across “Fucking In Love”. It’s hard to describe Sabrina Petrini’s music in a few words. It’s a fairy-dusting of resonating keyboards on top of an ethereal cadence, its lush instrumentals alongside precise vocal transitions from low diva seduction up to high full-throated vamp. Her music neither soothes nor satiates, but it captivates.

The music itself on “Fucking In Love” is utterly beguiling and masterfully arranged – vivid and memorable, impressionable and highly detailed. It is great headphone music too, and totally remix friendly for the best clubs in the world – as good as any classic ‘modern-pop’ single release in recent memory.

I admit that I am a little late to the Sabrina Petrini party but I’m glad to have witnessed her emotionally provoking video for the “Fucking In Love” track. Together with her distinct vocal quality and lyrical mastery set in a sultry bed of mesmerizing music, Sabrina creates a world of images and emotions. This orgasmic listening experience will no doubt reach its climax with the release of her upcoming EP… and I can’t wait!
