„Vivre Libre - This is the curtain - The final season…“
Psychedelic songstress ANIQO is releasing her debut album, BIRTH on the 18th of March via SPRINGSTOFF. The album is largely produced by Guy Sternberg (Kings of Convenience, Feist and Yoko Ono) with whom ANIQO recorded 8 songs in his Berliner LowSwing Studios 2020 together with her bandmates Illia Vovk and Torsten Füchsel. ANIQO has previously worked with Joe Cardamone (Mark Lanegan, Warren Ellis of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds and The Stooges’ former member James Williamson) who also produced two of the songs on the album.
BIRTH is an audio journey out of the darkness (which is depicted with heavier songs such as the title track Birth, Must surrender and The Sea) and into the light, which we find glimmering with hope in each of the psychedelic tracks. Within ‘Vivre Libre’ we can find ANIQQ's elegant metaphorical and symbolic imagery as each carefully chosen lyric winds its way into the heart. Ultimately the album is a socio-critical debut that is laden with personal caresses, including a nod to the ancestors as well as touching on the importance of both trust and freedom. At times gritty, other times writhing with synth-laden complexities and the occasional smooth jazz element, the album contains something for everyone.
