Anna of the North premiers video for "Lovers"

I'm so absolutely thrilled to be sharing this, being a huge fan of Norwegian and Kiwi duo, Anna of the North. Anna Lotterud and Brady Daniell-Smith make the dreamiest synth-pop, with infectious and airy beats perfect for grooving along to. After gracing the internet with single after single, the duo just recently announced their debut album is dropping September 8th via Different Recordings. They then debuted their title single Lovers, and premiered the video shortly after June 19th on The FADER. 

Speaking to FADER, Anna explained the video, “On a literal level, the video is about being lost at a house party and surrounded by couples when your own relationship has fallen apart. Digging deeper, it’s set in the same place as the song, that point when you feel so alone and you're reaching out but they're not reaching back. It’s desperate."

The song itself is absolutely brilliant, with tidy production and the breathtaking vocals of Lotterud. Combine that with the mega-seductive and hazy video, and you have a perfectly wrapped indie-synth package.

Anna of the North on quite literally on the cusp of blowing up, and I'm so thrilled for what's still to come.
