Elegant and intricate: Berlin based avant-pop artist ANNAVR has shared new track ‘Under The Sand’, taken from her debut EP I: Hallucination. The release is the first of a 3-part EP trilogy – II: Vibration and III: Salvation – both of which are due 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 artist and producer elaborates: “The title is an acknowledgement for a state that describes somewhere between the biggest possible relief, and the most terrible unfulfilled longing. 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 (BBC 6 Music), 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. Listen to the lo-fi, piano-led tune below and follow ANNAVR on Facebook for more updates.
