Welcome to Anika. We couldn’t stop tapping our feet when listening to your new hit, “At All.” What was your source of inspiration behind this fierce single?
Thank you so much for having me, I really appreciate it! This particular song holds a significant place in my heart, as it emerged from a moment of vulnerability. Among all the songs I’ve written, this one is definitely my favorite. Its essence revolves around the experience of losing someone close to you and the act of masking your emotions, even in moments of internal turmoil. It’s a reflection on the constant presence of someone in your thoughts, even when rationality suggests otherwise.
You are such a fun talented artist! Did you have any artistic or musical influences in mind when crafting your hard-hitting and dynamic instrumentals for “At All”? What or who helped you bring this killer sound to life?
More than a particular artist influencing, for this song I wanted the instrumentals to blend perfectly with the vocals to draw the listener in as the song and the emotions in it build. My amazing producer, Mark Vogel, helped me bring this song to life. We have such an amazing partnership! He somehow knows exactly what’s in my head and has this incredible way of putting it right into music.
Why did you choose to release “At All” as a single? How does this song prepare listeners for what’s to come?
I chose to release At All as a single because I feel like it really reflects the new sound that I am working on. Not only is it very personal lyrically, it has a tempo and sound that I feel really fits me at this time. It is a perfect first taste for my audience to lead them towards what is coming next.
Do you have any other projects you are currently working on?
I currently have an album in the works which is very exciting! I can’t wait to be able to share it with everyone in the future. I also have some very exciting collaborations coming up with several TV shows and brands. More details to come!
Where can listeners find you social and hear your music?
