Five years ago, the 21 year old ANNNA wrote down 10 questions to her future self. She had completely forgotten about them, up until a couple of months ago, when she accidentally found these on her old phone.
“I found a note from 5 years ago with questions I wanted to ask to my future self,” tells ANNNA, “I got goosebumps after reading those questions. So much has changed since then, and, I mean, not only me, but the whole planet.”
Therefore, she decided to dedicate her next releases to each of these questions.
“Sunburn” is the first release from ANNNA’s “Thoughts of a 21 Year Old” series and it tackles that first question found in her notes: “Will our planet get unbearably hot?”. “Sunburn”, produced by the Dutch artist JENGI, is an ironic, sunny anthem to high SPF’s, pool parties and endless summer nights. Lyrics that tell a story of our planet’s rising temperatures, wrapped in sticky bass lines, hooky vocals and funky guitar riffs. The video features the artist herself dancing in different beautiful places in her home-country Latvia.
This summer will indeed be very hot for ANNNA. After “Sunburn”, the artist will release a track on the world famous, British house music label DEFECTED. Whereas in August this female producer and singer will make us dance with one incredible girl power anthem on the Dutch DJ’s, Don Diablo’s new, female focused label, “Lovelace”.
ANNNA is a Latvian/Dutch producer and singer from Amsterdam. Sustainability, burnouts and equality are some of the topics that she covers in her music.
