Anniken Jess Iversen, or Anana in short, is one of the finest new female voices in the Norwegian scene. But she could be as well one the Scandinavian country’s most talented young composers.
Her 2015 single, “Swimmer’s Body Illusion”, is spacious, heavily reverbed, and incredibly beautiful. Just like her previous efforts, it makes it clear that Anana comes from a place where darkness is not something to avoid but part of your daily life.
Her haunting vocals and slowed-down, piano-meets-laptop arrangements actually tend to have an uplifting effect. And the moment when electronic beat joins Anana’s reverbed voice is something you’ll want to experience again and again.
