Single Review: Anna of the North – ‘Someone’
Since their first debut single Sway, the Norwegian-Kiwi duo Anna Lotterud and Brady Daniell-Smith, or more familiarly known as Anna of the North, have racked up over an impressive 60 million streams and multiple No.1 chart spots. In the run up to their worldwide album release Lovers, they are keeping us on the edge of our seats with their latest track Someone, which is to feature on the highly anticipated release later this year.
From the moment we pressed play on Someone we had built up high expectations for what we were about to hear and to say that we wer blown away would actually be a bit of an understatement. Initially met with a soft introduction, Someone quickly breaks down to give way to a wave of nostalgic drum patterns and retro synthesiser effects which overwhelm with a warm fuzzy feeling.
After being hurled into a reminiscent trip down memory lane, Anna Lotterud greets you there with her astounding vocals which narrate to you an idea that we are all but human, and that sometimes we need someone special in our lives to hold out an affirming hand and save us from ourselves and the reoccurring mistakes we sometimes make. The powerful combination of Anna’s vocals alongside the heart-warming instrumental makes for a simply amazing track which is just a small piece of the puzzle that will be Lovers.
