Anna of the North release debut album ‘Lovers’

Getting whisped away is normally some terrible fairy-tale slang, but in the stride of today’s music landscape its the polar opposite. Today, Anna of the North release their highly anticiapted debut album ‘Lovers.’ Channeling the emotions of heartbreak through ten tracks, the record arrives three-years after their debut single.

The Norwegian-Kiwi duo of Anna Lotterud and Brady Daniell-Smith discovered they could make music together as a way of exorcising the demons of their love lives and the project was born. He jokingly started calling her “Anna Of The North” and the name stuck.

It’s the two of them combined that make Anna Of The North’s sparse, brooding electro-pop so potent. Brady, who’s from New Zealand and grew up partly in Australia, injects elements of the countries’ bright, vibrant electronic scene to their music; Anna brings the glacial minimalism of her Scandinavian roots.
Now they offer up an emphatically assured debut LP ‘Lovers’, its clean, springy beats and shimmering synths underpinned by the rich, emotive clarity of Anna’s voice.
