After a couple of her own quite hefty rock songs, the Austrian-born rock singer ANTONJA releases a classic, which she re-recorded with her band in the studio. This time she strikes somewhat calmer tones.
In her version of "Twist in my Sobriety" ANTONJA has made the song completely her own and given it a chilling modern soft rock character, which sounds very relaxed and coherent with "clean" electric guitars and despite additional "crunchy" distorted guitars. The musical picture is additionally painted with the deep sounding warm sound of her vocals and the dominating orchestral cello sounds.Singer ANTONJA can be found in many of the messages from this song lyrics.
The original from 1988 was written by British singer Tanita Tikaram.
The lyrics leave a lot of room for imagination and own interpretations. But basically everything revolves around the meaning of life and how to master it. The text encourages people to try something new and make journeys to solve their problems and say goodbye to destructive patterns. It also says that you should accept the opinions of others and respect them, but you should also make your own decisions and find your own way. Also describes the restlessness from younger years, too much thinking, confused thoughts, but also the confusion of feelings after seeing through "rose-colored glasses".
In the end, the song lyrics express that you should stay true to yourself and keep control over your own life.
Twist in my Sobriety by ANTONJA will be available on all major music portals worldwide on 04/14/2023.
A soft rock song to sit back, it's a good one to ponder, think, feel and relax to.
In a "Rock'n Chill Dance Version" the song is also immortalized as a remix variant on her new single.
ANTONJA shows with the cover version of "Twist in my Sobriety" that her voice is very versatile and also convinces in the lower registers of her entire vocal range.With her first own published rock songs ANTONJA celebrated with "What a Night", "Shutdown", "Burnout" and "My Lord", already some attention successes in international charts. Currently, the singer is still working diligently on her rock album with her band.
....."She's in love with you. ...So treat her nice, treat her good Treat her like you know you should. You may never find another girl like her"...
Inspired by these lyrics in the song, singer Antonja addresses domestic violence in her music video and wants to make her contribution to raise awareness to combat these acts.
Stop Domestic Violence! 30% of all women worldwide have suffered physical or sexual violence within a relationship. 81,000 women and girls were killed worldwide in 2020. Above all, their own homes were often not a safe place: More than half of them were murdered by close relatives. Since 1999, November 25 has been observed as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Statistics show that 12% to 15% of women in Europe are victims of domestic violence every day.
It is one of the most widespread human rights violations worldwide and must be fought. Unfortunately, the number of unreported cases is still too high.
"She's in love with you" - The original song is a hit from the 70s by Suzi Quatro. With this cover version and her new interpretation of the title Antonja combines several messages. "Let's be happy together, no matter what gender, what sexual orientation, what origin. True to the motto "Love, Peace & Rock'n Roll.
Antonja releases her fifth rock single titled "My Lord". The release is worldwide on 14.10.2022.
The singer explains, "It's always exciting for me how some songs are created, how each one of them has its origin and then becomes a story, even a project, through creative and also real thoughts.'' That's how it was with "My Lord."
Antonja was working with her musicians on her rock album. After a long, creative and crazy day, they sat together on the studio terrace and watched a beautiful sunset. Impressed by this extraordinary light atmosphere, Antonja said aloud the words "Oh my God, let me shine". In that moment the song "My Lord" was born.
After that, more ideas flowed in creative collaboration with her producer.
My Lord" is all about life, right or wrong, yes you can be crazy and should have fun. Dark thoughts are ok too, but always stay on the right side.
Lyrics flow into this 152 BPM fast power track with fat guitars, like "See my fire burn, lost my dreams in darkness, I'm always on the right side, always on your way, come on let me shining...give it to me, oh what I'm crazy". These and some other lines give a special expression to the new rock song "My Lord" by Antonja.
The elaborate production of a film-ready music video continued the creative path of "My Lord". Antonja was inspired by a nightmare in which she herself was completely impoverished and homeless. Antonja: "It was my own existential fear that often haunted me, to lose everything at some point, plus the daily images from news or when you stroll through the city and you become more and more aware of the social ills that certainly led to this dream."
This gave rise to the idea and the script for the new music video together with their producer Peter Schutti. "Using rock music to draw attention to social ills.
And so the music video is also the starting signal for a charity idea of helping bikers, the "Help Angels" with Antonja as the figurehead. In the music video, this idea is already presented cinematically, with over 50 people on the set, this major production by Georgiew Film from Germany was realized at a high international level.
Antonja would like to inspire many more bikers in the future to support her in her charity project under the name "Help Angel" to help homeless people, together to alleviate the gap between rich and poor a little. The music video was shot in her adopted home of Mallorca, in and around the Mallorcan restaurant "Es Cruce". Antonja was particularly pleased about the great support of the locals, even during the preparations for the video shoot and about the participation and support of all bikers of the "HOG" (Harley Owners Group) PM Mallorca Chapter.
Antonja also again announces her planned rock album, which is now definitely scheduled for release in 2023.
On Facebook, she explained to her fans: "I kept thinking for the last few months that my rock album was finished.'' But every time we were in the studio to rework some details or mix a song that was actually almost finished, new music was created again. I feel very creative right now, and so does my team. I feel like that's the way it has to be right now, and I'm extremely happy with this whole development and I want to take this creative time as well. But 2023 is the time, then my album will come and I will be back on stage for you with my band."
After her singles, "What a Night", "Burnout" and "Shutdown", Antonja now continues to pave her way to her first rock album with "My Lord" through creative freedom. The singer announces,
"There's still a lot to come, there are still some surprises, it's insanely fun to live through this development.
Antonja describes in her song "Shutdown" an up and down ride in total emotional chaos. Feelings that we have all experienced before, where we lose control. Who doesn't know that? It then feels like going to hell once and back again. Sometimes it's sudden events and you just can't think and feel clearly anymore, you're at your limit, so you want to shout it out into the world, you want to tell everyone how you're feeling right now in the hope that it will get better afterwards.
"Shutdown" the rock song of "Antonja" carries this time quite a clearly special character, goes into the ear and is available worldwide from 24.06.2022.
In the lyrics Antonja describes the ups and downs of emotions of various life situations. The rock lady writes songs in which she often packs her own experiences. She says: "We are all just human beings and everyone has experienced situations in life where such emotional chaos happened to you. But as they say, after the rain comes the sun again and so the power that pulls you into hell also brings you back up again, I try to find the positive in everything". Antonja is indeed a very positive person, and despite all the chaos that has already taken place in her life, she always managed to redirect her thoughts into positive vibrations. According to the motto: Everything will be fine!
Antonja is currently working with her musicians in her own recording studio in her finca on the island of Mallorca on her first new rock album. The music videos for her previous singles "What a Night" and "Burnout" were also shot on the island, as well as the new music video for "Shutdown". Planning for a worldwide live tour in 2023 with her band is in full swing. First dates also in the USA will be fixed this summer. For Germany and the rest of Europe, the first dates will follow in the fall.
Tick, Tock, Tick Tock,…Antonja announces new rock single. She is a singer and songwriter. Together with her musicians and her team, the artist likes to write songs from life, and very often her own experiences flow into her lyrics. Thus, the message of her rocking debut single "What a Night" was also strongly influenced by her own broken open thought patterns and emotions. Antonja has been in the music business for a long time, has experienced a lot and also had to take hard blows of fate. She wanted a musical change and now follows her "passion" of rock music.
Now Antonja presents her next rock single with the title "Burnout". Also this time inspired by personal experiences, the singer has processed and packaged the widespread, but still too often underestimated topic "Burnout" in her new song. She wants to make this topic heard again and she does that with music.
The rock single "Burnout" by "Antonja" is available worldwide as a download and on streaming portals from 25.03.2022.
Antonja: "Burnout", a very underestimated topic that can affect each of us, in this fast-paced time with a lot of pressure to perform, social media and a currently very turbulent world. Therefore, inform yourself about it. Look out for signs in your fellow human beings, too, including children and young people."
Her message: ""Take care of yourselves, find your inner center, fight for it, because it is never too late. You still have light in your eyes! You still have strength, use it and live a beautiful life and “your eyes are shining in the darkness."
Antonja knows what she is talking and singing about, because as Antonia aus Tirol she celebrated many years of great success in the german pop genre. She also experienced the dark side of success, including a burnout. Perhaps such experiences are behind the singer's decision to completely change something in her life?
With her debut single "What a Night," Antonja has now gained greater international attention, entering the iTunes rock charts worldwide, reaching #6 in Germany and also placing in the Top 100 in the U.S. On Spotify, over 1.7 million streams were achieved after only a short time.
The beginning has been made. Now the Austrian singer is planning her next singles, until her album, which is still to be released in 2023, several rock singles will now follow.

DING-A-LING (Merry Christmas) by ANTONJA was released on 11/26/2021 as "Radio Rockin' X-Mas Version".
It is a simple soft Christmas rock song with quite dominant guitar riffs and powerful drums but a very catchy melody.
Antonja loves Christmas time, just because it is very colorful and kitschy. She always wanted to write a Christmas song. It was important to her that big and small can sing along with such a song immediately under the Christmas tree. With "Ding-a-ling Merry Christmas" she has certainly succeeded. A simple melody that catches the ear. Antonja imagines families and friends taking time for each other at Christmas time, sitting together, having fun and singing together. Just as she had fun recording the song with her band in the studio. In the record studio, a Christmas decoration was made especially for this.
