The first sounds of “Beach Baby, Baby”, the new EP by Nick & June, cause several associative bells to ring at once: Dream Pop! LoFi! Sixties! And those who have known the duo from Nuremberg for a while may be momentarily puzzled: Where’s the indie-folk? Well, after a creative break (and more than two pandemic years) it’s okay to start a new chapter, right?

Her music, an effortless blend of striking influences and a fresh, contemporary view on the genre; Anieszka has been consistently building a body of work that reflects the sound and culture that has raised her, as well as reflecting the passionate approach she brings to her writing now.
