“Fist Fight” is the first single off C’est Karma's upcoming EP to be released in late November 2020.

Heavily engaged in social and political topics C’est Karma speaks out on current matters and is involved in organising the climate strikes in her home town. After starting busking in the age of 15, her third ever show saw Karma support Milky Chance, two years later she was awarded the Luxembourg Music Award as Best Upcoming Female Artist – all before releasing her debut EP in 2019.
C’est Karma’s latest single “Girls,” released in support of international women’s day 2020, had her garnering praise from the likes of The Line Of Best Fit, ZEITmagazin, DIFFUS and Deutschlandfunk Kultur and showcased her artistic development combining her songwriter roots with captivating electronic influences.
2020 will see C’est Karma continue telling her story, fluently in 7 languages.
“Fist Fight was born out of the simple realisation that I had never been in a physical fight with anyone. This led me to reflect on the absurdity of violence and the relation between violence and pain. In the song I tried to paint a fight scene in lyrical imagery. Fist Fight is about the conflicts everyone finds in themselves at some point in life, about the fight between reason and instinct. In the writing process of the song I explored the relief and pain we can find in violence. Marina Abramovic once commented on her piece Light/Dark, where she and her partner Ulay, slapped each other in the face for twenty minutes, that: ‘It is not the pain itself that matters. […] We were looking for a key, a way to break through the body, to open something up, which is a desire that comes from another side of truth or reality.’”
