Anna of the North is a product of heartbreak, and the recovery that comes after.
Anna Lotterud was working in a shop in a small town near Oslo, Norway when an encounter with a stranger prompted her to book a flight to Australia and leave her life – and relationship – behind.
There she met Brady Daniell-Smith. Brady, who’d been struggling with his own relationships, and who encouraged her to find solace in songwriting – that collaboration became ‘Anna of the North’ – a thrilling brand of electro-pop that Norwegian artists seem to excel at.
We’re premiering the video for their track “Someone” – the band say of the song: “We think almost everyone has woken up after a big night, instantly regretting something that happened. It’s about how easy it is to break your promises when you’ve had a couple of drinks.
“Going deeper, the song is about accepting that you’re only human and to learn how to forgive yourself for your own mistakes and accepting that sometimes we need someone to save us from repeating any old habits.” Review By independent.co.uk
