ARTIST SNAPSHOT: Anika

BERLIN, Germany (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — On the heels of her Geoff

Barrow-produced debut album, Anika returns with this seductive self-titled EP.

Anika's version of The Kinks’ lovelorn classic I Go To Sleep leads the EP, which

also features brand new covers of songs by The Crystals (He Hit Me), Chromatics

(In The City) and Shocking Blue (Love Buzz) as well as dub versions of previous

singles Yang Yang and No One’s There by Bristol producer Ratman.

Now based in Berlin, Anika retains strong ties to the Bristol scene where it all

began, following a meeting with producer Geoff Barrow and his freeform kraut

band Beak>. Barrow was initially on the search for a vocalist for his

experimental new group but as the relationship developed it became that ‘Anika’

was a collaborative project in its own right.

Anika EP is accompanied by a video which will premier in March for I Go To

Sleep, directed by Uli M. Schueppel, a Berlin film director known for his 1990s

Nick Cave biopic, A Road To God Knows Where. The video was shot in the shadowy

forests of Brandenburg, and its ending invites speculation about this phase in

Anika’s career.

Recently performing with her new Berlin-based line-up across Europe, including a

home show in Berlin's legendary Berghain club, Anika has just confirmed a long-

overdue return to the UK, joining the bill for the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s curated ATP

at London’s Alexandra Palace on May 4th, 2013.


Stones Throw will release the EP worldwide, continuing the relationship that

began with the US license of Anika’s first record. The cult US indie label is

best known for releases by the likes of J Dilla and Mayer Hawthorne as well as

electronic pioneers from Bruce Haack to James Pants, and recently collaborated

with New York’s Minimal Wave label on two influential compilations.


The EP was recorded in Bristol at State of Art Studios, with Beak> members Billy

Fuller and Matt Williams, as well as Andy Sutor (drums) and Rasha Shaheen

(keys/vox/guitar), who have made up Anika’s touring band for the last three

years. The tracks were all produced by Geoff Barrow and Beak>.
