Anika (UK)

Anikaís ghostly post-punk dub-out was created with bristol group Neak> at the helm. Living between Berlin and Bristol whilst working as a political journalist and music promoter, Anika met Bristol band Beak>. Immediately it was clear that they shared the same musical vision; a love of punk, dub and 60ís girl groups. The following week Anika and Beak> went into the studio to begin recording her debut album. They recorded the album in 12 days but thereís an enormous attention to detail in the textures and songwriting. Coming across like a less ethereal glasser, a reverb ghosted chanteuse informed by the post-punk outer limits and fun-for-funís sake, Anikaís debut record is one of those growers which soon envelope you and wonít let you go.
