FRESH: ‘Freddie’ – ANNNA

ANNNA releases “Freddie”

“Freddie” is an energetic, nostalgic dance track by the upcoming Dutch/Latvian artist ANNNA. The main story in the track is about a girl and her Teddy Bear who were told that everything now a days is possible, however, that’s not entirely true. ANNNA produced the track herself during the first weeks of quarantine while observing whather friends are going through these days.

The artist is known to write about specific teams that bother her, such as global warming, fast fashion and millennial problems. In the last twelve months, the twenty-five-year old ANNNA has managed to not only be the warm-up act for the American singer LP, but also to perform at the Eurosonic Festival, win the Amsterdam Dance Event’s Demolition and get featured in Mixmag magazine.

ANNNA’s long-awaited release of her EP: “Mortgage On Toast” will be released on November 13th. Meanwhile, she’s been playing several concerts in the Netherlands due to the fact that she’s one of the local, OOR music magazine’s Popronde talents this year.

ANNNA is from Amsterdam. Sustainability, burnouts and equality are some of the topics that she covers in her music. In October ANNNA won the Amsterdam Dance Event’s demo competition with her song, “Stardom/Hater” with such legends as Dave Clarke, Eli Iwasa, Joseph Capriati, Kristin Velvet, Todd Terry and Mike Mago in the jury. This win landed her a three day studio experience at the W Barcelona Sound Suite together with the Dutch DJ Mike Mago.

Meanwhile, her song, “The One That Got Away”, became the No.1 played track on one of the biggest radios in Latvia. ANNNA’s third single, “Polyester” received viral media attention on all the biggest Dutch radios, magazines and television shows in the Netherlands. In January this year, ANNNA played a killer show at the ESNS 2020 Festival, which resulted in her first summer festival tour. Due to the current crisis, the singer instead has scheduled several unique live-stream experiences and new single releases.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
