APACALDA is the name of singer/songwriter Cassandra Angheluta, a Montreal based artist. APACALDA, meaning “warm water” in her mother tongue, Romanian, is a reflection of Cassandra’s means of movement through her art and life – a reminder to reconnect to the warm water that can calm and ground you, despite the chaos and unpredictability of outside circumstances.
From its inception, the song “Male Gaze” was fueled by a passionate resentment. As women, a great majority of our existence has been to accommodate or be appealing, appeasing, and submissive to men. APACALDA’s intention with this single is to evoke a deliberate introspection into our own accountability of how we propagate the current “gaze” imposed on femme/women and the emerging ramifications.
APACALDA is creating her own immersive world with a refreshed approach to indie rock, electronic pop meets dream wave sounds. Her debut self-titled four track EP released on Oct 14.
The EP was written and inspired by true events in APACALDA’s life. It is meant to simulate an inner downward spiral, enchanting the listener to descend into a hauntingly beautiful immersive world that has been meticulously yet authentically curated.
