Sadness Theory is self-composed, melodious singer/songwriter music wishing to affect you with its stories. Sadness Theory started out as a music duo performing together since 2008 and is since 2011 a soloproject, with Kattis singing and playing either the piano or the guitar.
Sadness Theory has performed in various venues mainly around Uppsala, Sweden, such as local festivals, theme nights and vintage-events. Made of things, released in 2012, was featured by Mary from the LA based blog Along comes Mary, who says:
I have fallen in-love with their current single, “Made of Things”. ”What do you believe in” she sings, “praying to a Gucci God, who made a bag? What’s on your mind,
update yourself before it’s too late.”
The first album “Praying to a Gucci God”, released on the 6th october 2012, includes ten tracks with the valuable contribution from local artists. Listen to it in Soundcloud or Spotify.
A common theme in my music is environment, reusing the things we own but also the identity issues that emerge from living in a materialistic society.
So WHO is Kattis?
I started singing when I was a child but started composing and playing instruments in my early twenties. I get inspired by the people around me, the world we live in, my everyday stories. Then I sit by the piano or the guitar and express my thoughts and feelings through the lyrics and melodies.
Artists that have inspired me a lot in my music are Tori Amos, The Cure and Portishead. Other artists I enjoy and that awaken my creativity are Regina Spektor and Marina and the Diamonds.
