On the heels of her critically acclaimed, 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 illuminating 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 coincidental 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 clear that ‘Anika’ was a collaborative project in its own right.
