Annie - Back Together
One of my favorites, the Norwegian gum chewing heartbreaker Annie Strand, is back for an EP coming later this year titled A&R with the help of Richard X (the “R” in A&R as well as a major force behind a lot of my favorite synth/electro/pop tracks… M.I.A.’s recently Soundboard highlighted 10 Dollar for example). In case you couldn’t tell, I’ll just tell you now that I’m super excited.
I’ve heard 2 of her new tracks so far and while “Tube Stops and Lonely Hearts" is catchy, the vaguely Eastern influenced and very retro synthesized Back Together is definitely the winner of the two. But who knows, maybe Ralph Macchio, another upcoming track from the EP will be a big leg-sweeper. Leg-sweeping… it’s one of my super cool dance moves.
Anyway, I hope you all had a good week! See you next Sunday, and stay rad!
