Natasha Enquist New Single ‘Unbroken Girl (White Rose Remix)’, Berlin - Germany

Natasha EnquistMixing dark female vocals with haunting melody lines from the accordion, ‘Unbroken Girl (White Rose Remix)’ is about the 1920s Berlin-based German silent film actress and Otto Dix muse, Anita Berber, whose life was cut short at the age of 29.

Among her many vices, one of Berber's favourite habits was to mix chloroform and ether in a bowl, to then stir with a white rose and consume the petals.

The original mix is the 5th track from Natasha Enquist’s debut album, ‘MNE’, and has been featured on the soundtrack for the Berlin-made short film ‘The Birthday’ (2015), along with three other of her original compositions, which was nominated for Best Sound & Music at the ShanghaiPRIDE Film Festival.

‘Unbroken Girl (White Rose Remix)’ will also be available at all major online music shops, or wherever you like to stream music, in the coming days (Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, etc).
