EARLY RESULTS ‘SOMEONE’

  • Peaked at #2 on the Hype Machine Charts
  • sublime new single” – The Line of Best Fit
  • “reminding us why Scandinavians are the best when it is time to create innovative pop music” – Highclouds

Anna of the North, who are touring Australia in August, have revealed ‘Someone’, the second single to be taken from their highly anticipated debut album Lovers – out Friday 8 September through Different Recordings. The swaggering opening and head rush of synths make way for Anna’s tender vocals, before the chorus explodes into a blockbuster-scale road trip.

Speaking about ‘Someone’, the band say: “We think almost everyone has woken up after a big night, instantly regretting something that happened. It’s about how easy it is to break your promises when you’ve had a couple of drinks. Going deeper, the song is about accepting that you’re only human and to learn how to forgive yourself for your own mistakes and accepting that sometimes we need someone to save us from repeating any old habits.”

Lovers is an album deeply rooted in heartbreak, a subject that courses through the veins of all ten tracks – through the turmoil, the guilt and the tentative joy of finally letting yourself move on.

In three years since the release of debut single ‘Sway’, the Norwegian-Kiwi duo of Anna Lotterud and Brady Daniell-Smith have paved the way for their full-length debut following a run of singles which have notched up over 60 million streams, multiple No.1 spot’s on the Hype Machine charts and rotation on Radio 1, Triple J and Beats 1.

Now they offer up an emphatically assured debut LP, its clean, springy beats and shimmering synths underpinned by the rich, emotive clarity of Anna’s voice. Recorded in Oslo and mixed in Copenhagen and London by Luke Smith (Foals, Depeche Mode), Lovers is a coherent but endlessly varied beast.
