Track of the week. I am always in awe of songs that are stripped back to the bare minimum yet still find a way to bleed through as much emotion as this release does, from LA-based singer and songwriter Annika Rose.
“When I’m writing it has to be past midnight, and everyone has to be asleep. I turn off all the lights and turn on my lava lamp, light some incense and just sit there until I’m literally asleep at the piano. The only thing I have to be vulnerable with is my piano, and luckily it doesn’t talk back to me. This is my only way of fully expressing who I am and what I feel, and I’m not afraid of it anymore.”
