Paula Carolina (DEU)class="English">Visiting Paula Carolina’s fan club page offers a glimpse into her world: “I’m Paula Carolina, 23 years old, I live in Mannheim with my band and write songs all day long.” In addition, she dances “like crazy” with her band on stage, always striving to be close to her audience. A Paula Carolina gig is a high-octane affair, encapsulated by lyrics like “We’ve seen you, fear eats democracy.” Her musical journey began with her first off-key notes on the piano at the age of five as she grew up to the soundtrack of her father’s Neue Deutsche Welle and jazz vinyls. Paula Carolina is serious about music, even dropping out of her politics degree to fully embrace it. With bold, direct lyrics, she dives into the realms of politics and love, amassing over ten million streams and significant airplay on German-speaking radio stations. Her music is unapologetically rocky and raw, combining social commentary with a party atmosphere.
