ANNIKA AND THE FOREST
Annika and The Forest’s songs are melancholic pop songs illuminated by northern lights. The songs exude an elegant sensuality that project you into a world of images or scenes from an un-existing film. Pure and intense, Annika Grill’s voice has a unique way to switch from darkness to light through efficient melodies, strong lyrics, hypnotic bass-lines, stripped keyboards, enriched by acoustic and electronic notes from musicians of various influences.
