Hiding In My Room by Kraków Loves Adana











The new song Hiding In My Room, by Hamburg-based producer and artist Kraków Loves Adana, is another preview of the upcoming album Oceanflower, which is scheduled to be released on February 14th, 2023. When The Storm Comes, a song that Ruth Radelet and Adam Miller, two former members of the Chromatics, and others collaborated on, was the album's lead single before the release of Hiding In My Room. Swedish animator and illustrator Johannes Helgelin directed and produced the animation video that goes with it.

Deniz Çiçek whispers optimistic ideas about alienation and adolescence while enveloped in resonating synth arpeggios and eighties disco sparkle. This is a very moody song which has all the characteristics of a bright, but melancholic KLA track.

Deniz Çiçek comments on Hiding In My Room: “This song is a rebellion against depression, isolation, hopelessness. It is also a testimony of me pulling myself out of a very dark place mentally. Music helps. Therapy helps even more. I am proud of how far I have come.“

Director Johannes Helgelin speaks about the music video: “The theme and subject matter behind the video for Hiding In My Room is identity, the prerequisites for successfully forming one, and how important it is to have one to be able to to venture out from adolescence to adulthood.”
