The latest WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight is focused on the beautiful country of Norway and shines directly on the amazing new single, “Lovers,” which is the title-track from Oslo duo Anna of the North’s upcoming debut LP, out September 8th via Different Recordings.
Anna of the North is Anna Lotterud and Brady Daniell-Smith. They met five years ago in Australia after Lotterud left Norway to find new and exciting challenges away from her everyday life and came across Daniell-Smith, a New Zealand-born Australian, playing an acoustic set in a club. The two found a kinship in the lovelorn past they left behind and turned to music as an outlet, each bringing their own unique style to the table to create a sound that expertly blends Scandinavian pop sensibility with Australia’s quickly growing electronic music scene.
“Lovers” takes on the subject of broken relationships with shimmering vocals and beautiful beats. The duo are not afraid to wear their heart on their sleeve and remind the listener that in the end music makes everything better.
