”I learnt to write songs by studying British Folk Music and singing old English folk songs,” explains Anglo-Polish singer song-writer KATY CARR.”The themes seemed quite contemporary – love, death, war, interpersonal conflicts…” These sunjects, viewed through the prism of Carr’s grand obsession with Poland in the interwar years and after, are brought to vivid life on her singular fifth album, Polonia. Its folk-tinged pop constructions include valorous, cinematic salutes to the likes of SOE agent Krystyna Skarbek, Bletchley Park cryptographers and legendary north London junk hoarder Edmund Trebus. Incidentally she doesn’t feel she’s born in the wrong era : ”I love living in the 21st century.” IH
