First name: Anna. Last name: Of the North. The Norwegian sweetheart amazed us with “Dreamer” but has totally put me in a trance with her newest, “Baby.”
It’s tough being critical in my blogging adventures, because I do need to separate the good, bad, and the “please don’t quit your day job,” but at the same time I don’t want to be like those impossible to please movie or food critics. I love the words “don’t fight it,” because (while I know they are meant in a relationship context), they spoke to me in a different way. They told me to stop fighting for one second and just let the music wash over. The continuous synths are gentle and golden like electric alchemy, and the vocals from Anna of the North are like a slow burning, comforting fire. Enjoy!
