Bristol and Berlin based singer-songwriter Anika has only made a few blips on the blogosphere radar, but that won’t be true for long. The singer was tapped by Portishead member and producer Geoff Barrow for his side project, Beak>, and she is releasing a self-titled EP mid-April, which features this gem of a Chromatics cover.
Anika manages to capture the isolation and signature John Carpenter style soundscape that have solidified Chromatics’ signature sound but ups the ante. Anika adds a post-punk sound, Nico-esque vocals, and a sexy pining to the already alluring track, making it all her own.
