Praise already received for Rykarda Parasol’s For Blood and Wine:
“You should listen to Rykarda Parasol if you don’t already. This is gorgeous, gothy, dark, sensual stuff...” – Crawdaddy.com
“Her music owes much to Nick Cave, but while he is grotesque and gothy, like some erudite, cave-dwelling mutant, Parasol’s more a precious vixen -- an inhumanly elegant entity that emerges from an ice palace each sunset, poured into a smoky evening gown, ready to wield her piercing stare in the service of some unsavory end..” – San Francisco Weekly
“...Rykarda Parasol is at once raw and earnest, sensual and callous with just enough wit and wry humor to make it all go down sweet and easy. For Blood and Wine is an intoxicating swig of bitters and a trace of lipstick on a stubbled cheek.” – The Big Takeover

For Blood and Wine
Release Date: Out Now
Born of a holocaust orphan and distant Swedish royalty, Rykarda Parasol uses her life story and a love of literature to craft music that is vacuously dark while simultaneously a celebration of life and its vices.
With a voice and lyrics compared to the likes of a female Nick Cave, and drawing influence from The Doors, Serge Gainsbourg, and Oscar Wilde, Parasol describes her music as “rock noir,” evoking moody cinema drenched in gin and white-collar crime. Parasol’s nature is strong, her prose is starkly sincere, and she could drink Tom Waits under the table.
Parasol’s new self-produced album For Blood and Wine is a true-life narrative depicting the progress and downward spiral of a rake, which in this case is female. “It’s witty, darkly romantic, edgy and elegant… It’s tales of infidelity, addiction, and death. Mostly sad, but some real moments of joy and hope,” Parasol states.
