Review: Katrina Stuart – ‘Under My Skin’



A Los Angeles-based artist making waves in the City of Angels, Katrina Stuart began developing her talents at the young age of four, cultivating a style and sound that was universally appealing while also very much her own. Fuelled by an unwavering passion for music and the recent success of her debut single, Katrina worked without fail to release her defiant debut album, ‘Under My Skin’.


An album that epitomes her creative spirit and work ethic, ‘Under My Skin’ have been noticed by fans and critics alike, even garnering praise from Musicash Records’ CEO, Jeff Marino has said, "Katrina is the hardest working artist I know and this album is proof of that! She is a quadruple threat; she can sing, dance, play instruments, and perform at the highest level! We are so proud of her and excited for the release of her first album ‘Under My Skin’."


A triumphant release, the new album brings together ten luscious tracks of unbridled pop brilliance, cutting together strands of glistening sound with personal musings and a timeless sense of artistry.


Opening cut ‘Dinner’ sets the tone for the album, sparking with a vivid performance and catchy hook that wonderfully reflects Katrina’s confidence. It’s a joyous, upbeat anthem that kickstarts Katrina’s musical journey, setting the scene and bringing us all along for the ride. In subsequent tracks like ‘Fly Away’ and ‘Numb’, Katrina takes a bold stance, embracing soulful sounds and enticing pop melodies to create depth and spread her message, before slipping into more luminous ethereal tones in ‘Love Shaped’.


From there, tracks like ‘Attraction’, ‘Gone’, and ‘Vampire’ arrive with their own sense of purpose, showcasing a more versatile side to Katrina’s sound. Each piece is polished, powerful, and unyielding in its focus, setting a stage from which her vocals can show their range.



Even in the final moments of the album, there is no letting up, and the final cuts of ‘Blues Roses’ and ‘Who She’ roll with additive pop and trap sounds, seamlessly blending delicate dance elements with rich vocal harmonies and subtle club aesthetics. It’s a fittingly anthemic end to the piece, leaving an impression that is nearly impossible to shake.


Available now on all major platforms, ‘Under My Skin’ is arguably one of the most powerful and enjoyable pop albums of the year so far.


Score: 8.5/10
