The First Lady of Invada
‘Anika’ album released 25th October on Invada Records
Invada Records are proud to announce the release of the debut, self
titled album by Anika, released on 25th October.
Living between Berlin and Bristol whilst working as a political
journalist and music promoter, Anika met Bristol band Beak>.
Immediately it was clear that they shared the same musical vision; a
love of punk, dub and 60’s girl groups. The following week Anika and
Beak> went into the studio to begin recording ANIKA's debut album.
They recorded the album in 12 days. The album is a collection of
uneasy easy listening.
Anika spent the long summers of her childhood in Germany. Raised by
her music-loving rebel mother, by the time she was 16 she had bought
shares in Haldern music festival, met Patti Smith and already dreamt
of a life making music. Living on the outskirts of London as a
teenager only increased her appetite for discovering new music and
becoming a musician. Post college degree and looking for like-minded
musical souls in Bristol she met Beak>.
The result of this collaboration is a
political/trashy/discordent/reggae/German/old school Bristol/punk-funk
sound - all sown together with a collection of classic songs and a
sound of other worldliness.
