Anika (Invada Records UK / Sacred Bones Records)
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 60’s girl groups. The following week Anika and Beak> went into the studio to begin recording ANIKA’s debut album, released in 2010 on Geoff Barrow's (Portishead) Invada imprint and distributed by Stones Throw.
Her new group, Exploded View, plays original songs, but past genres — post-punk, new wave, goth, industrial — echo through their dark music. Anika's chilly intonations in particular evoke moody singers like Siouxsie Sioux, Robert Smith and Debbie Harry, artists who can convey mystery and emotion in a single breath. The record was released on Sacred Bones in 2016.
