L’Impératrice New Release “Tako Tsubo” Out March 26th!

Tako Tsubo is the official name for “the broken-heart syndrome” (蛸 壺, from Japanese “octopus trap”), which manifests itself by a deformation of the heart due to an intense emotion, a negative or positive one. This title illustrates a flaw in the system, an abnormal EKG, an unusual break from the frenzy. Wouldn’t that be what the Great Lockdown of 2020 was all about?

All composed straddling a strange time, each of the 13 songs on the album is somehow a symptom of it. L’Impératrice lends itself brilliantly to this open heart surgery.
