They must be: Anna F.. Great looks at them as they zoom roars with flowing hair on their second-hand bike. Meet at a park in Berlin, the weather could hardly be better. Ann waves as they zoom cycling in her denim shorts and a faded Tank. And you notice immediately that it is one of those rare people who is impossible not to like. With its pleasant unaufgesetzten Art takes Ann an immediate fOr a and can at any moment valuable by their mere presence, without even having to stand only rudimentary effort.
If it a demanded one would not hesitate to confide in her his fragile soul. But that would never do naturally. On soul and fragility she finally has itself enough. That's on her new album "King In The Mirror" quite unequivocally to hear. But before Ann Bright eyed talking about her new album, she says on the shore of Lake Park once from their previous career.
Growing up she was in the Austrian Styria. In Friedberg. One 2,500-resident community. With 11 she is learning to play guitar. A short time later she already receives first original compositions with the tape recorder in her nursery. Then lost Ann a few years in the maelstrom of adolescent search for meaning, until she decides to perform at the graduation concert of their school. Ann catches on fire again, the music is the defining part of her life again.
As it draws to study in Graz, she learns Alex German Musician, music producer and artist manager, with whom it collaborates henceforth. And then suddenly everything goes very fast: Annas song "Time Stands Still" is on Myspace discovered by a company that is necessarily a commercial license it wants. But this is not all: from advertising the piece goes straight to the radio, and the radio directly into the charts. As Ann Shortly afterwards in Innsbruck concert fOr Lenny Kravitz may open up, is that it takes them straight away so impressed with her for the rest of his European tour as a support act. There she plays every night before up to 15,000 people and falls the logical decision: "My future is in the music to my music.."
Ann acquits away from the liver. Instead artificial walls to draw between themselves and others, it builds bridges rather, over which one follows her only too happy. It would be downright fOr her as she speaks with her open nature in wider Styrian dialect and this irresistible blend of childlike joy and honest pride about what has been achieved: from her modeling time alongside their studies; by founding her own label killer music on which they 2010 her successful debut album "For Real" released; of its mysterious main role in the movie "Invasion", of 2012 was honored at the World Film Festival in Montreal; by Arte documentation "On Jack's Road", in the Ann on the tracks of Jack Kerouac the United States traveled; or marked by the countless and from an oblique sense of humor Spontaneous videos that can be viewed on their YouTube channel.
Creative Versatility is called the well. And Annas creative versatility is just as impressive as the sympathetic, almost innocent-looking euphoria with which she talks about it; a creative versatility that on her new album "King In The Mirror" an acoustic correspondence finds; and a creative versatility Ann learn to curb once had, so as not to lose her. "I have built by working on this record new confidence, a new self-image of me done," says Ann. "In recent years, it was sometimes so loud around me that I could no longer hear that I even really want to go. So I had this whole noisy world with all its possibilities pushed aside until only I myself was Remaining . " And this act of self-discovery led across L.A.
There, Anna met with some of the best and most successful songwriters in the world, with people like Jimmy Harry (Madonna, Pink, Kylie Minogue), Rick Nowles (Lykke Li, Dido, Lana Del Rey) and July frost (Rihanna, Lena). An exciting and educational experience, as Ann grants; an experience, however, was aware through her especially as she does not want to work, and has strengthened the confidence in their own abilities. "In L.A. all want to write hit singles, because one thus earned the most money. But this forced Zielhaftigkeit you hear just as well." Instead, go Ann to Berlin, where they deal with the producers Philipp Steinke (Boy) teaming. "I immediately felt that Philipp is the right man. With him I felt artistically from the outset totally comfortable and canceled," says Ann. And one you realize the joy and satisfaction over the now present a result of this decision in album form significantly.
Was their debut album still held primarily in the tradition of classic singer / songwriter, is "King In The Mirror" now failed an entire track poppy. But no tacky plastic pop, but pop with edge; with hooks and eyes; with catchy melodies and lyrics that stick, but with the necessary pages dirtiness that give the songs the right level of authenticity.
Just take the time disreputable teaser Single "DNA", the Annas blurred image of the girl next door skillfully breaks. Or the dreamy honest "Too Far", where Anna longingly sings of the eternal struggle in the sign of love. Or reclined driving "Van Gogh" Over all these parallel worlds lived in the head between anxiety disorders and exuberant self-confidence. Or the theme song "King In The Mirror", the Ann along with former EMF guitarist Ian Dench wrote, and in which it brings the feeling of discrepancy between self and others with voluminous minimalism to the point.
In general, it goes on the plate often must to the duality of things: to truth and fiction, to love and hate to yesterday and tomorrow, to fear and courage, to themselves and to others. And therefore, as Anna F. combines all these opposites and with "King In The Mirror" a plate of this circumstance formed which makes this contrast audible, palpable, understandable; as it denies the reckless way to itself with musical versatility by which it takes its audience by the hand and asks you to follow her; namely unconcerned, impartially and without fear.
And how Ann so sitting there in the flickering darkness of a shade tree, in a moment of silence and through breathing for a detailed monologue about their art and music and their lives, because you suddenly know that she though in fact not in soul and Fragility lack, but they just have enough self-confidence and strength to deal with it.
"King In The Mirror, Queen Of The Shy" - Anna F. made it on her new album to make the contradictions of life audible, visible and tangible; to give their personal stories of relevance, which makes them for any other traceable; and their musical vision to impart an expressive face, so beautiful and mysterious and expressive as their own. At least.
