Rising Oslo-based duo Anna of the North presents two new dreamy synth pop singles off their forthcoming debut album due this fall.
Anna of the North has found an international audience and viral success internationally with an epic, swooning, and ethereal sound that, according to the FADER, “brings out Scandi-pop’s sensitive side.” The project got its start when singer Anna Lotterud, who grew up in a small town and was managing a clothing store in Oslo, began to feel unsettled in life and decided to travel alone to Melbourne, Australia. There, she met Brady Daniell-Smith (Little Dreamer), a fellow Norwegian and a producer, who recognized her talent and invited her into his circle of friends. Soon, a fruitful collaboration bloomed and became Anna of the North. Since then, the duo has continued to thrive, reaching over 16 million streams on Spotify, topping Hype Machine and even being invited for a feature on Tyler the Creator‘s newest track – “911 / Mr. Lonely” – alongside Frank Ocean and Steve Lacy.
After three years of releasing singles, Anna of the North has released the title track of their upcoming debut album, “Lovers,” as well as the softly stomping “Someone.” Anna describes the album as “deeply rooted in heartbreak, it’s a subject that courses through the veins of all ten tracks — through the turmoil, the guilty and the tentative joy of finally letting yourself move on.” The trancelike beats, wistful vocals, and emotive lyrics fuse to make “Lovers” a buoyant lamentation of fading love.
“Anna keeps twisting and warping the dreamlike blueprint of her Scandipop forebears to such gorgeous effect.” –NME
