About It's a Musical

It's a Musical's buoyant, brainy indie pop tunes, similar to other projects by co-founder Ella Blixt (Bobby Baby, Bobby & Blumm), nod to acts like Hello Seahorse!, Mates of State, and Architecture in Helsinki. Blixt met Robert Kretzschmar (also of Lady Boy), who would become the other half of It's a Musical, in 2006 while she was living in Malmö, Sweden, and working on her recordings as Bobby Baby. The two started working on It's a Musical's debut album in 2008, after Blixt moved to Berlin, Germany. That disc, The Music Makes Me Sick, was released on Morr Music in late 2008. The album was something of a hit in Japan and the duo toured there, and all over Europe as well, in the following months. Blixt and Kretzschmar then went their separate ways, with Blixt spending time working at the Popkollo and Ruby Tuesday girls rock camps and Kretzschmar joining the touring band of fellow Morr artist Masha Qrella. They reconvened in 2010 and began recording songs for their second album. For Years and Years was issued by Morr in the early spring of 2012. ~ Margaret Reges
