Elegant and intricate, Berlin based avant-pop artist ANNAVR has shared her new single ‘Under The Sand’. The track is taken from her debut EP I: Hallucination, which is the first of a 3-part EP trilogy the artist is planning – II: Vibration and III: Salvation – which are due to be released later this year.
Recorded in both Berlin and London, I: Hallucination is ANNAVR’s musical exploration of past romance in a futuristic musical context. “The title is an acknowledgement for a state that describes somewhere between the biggest possible relief, and the most terrible unfulfilled longing,” ANNAVR explains. “I don’t mean it in any way associated to drugs. It’s more like I am so open to things, my senses are so overwhelmingly awake, that most of the time I can feel like a battery that is overcharged.”
Praised by Lauren Laverne, Don Letts, The Fader, i-D Magazine and Interview Magazine, it’s easy to see why tracks like ‘Under The Sand’ are seeping in to a variety of musical consciences.
