Anna Phoebe ICONS
ICONS
5 // March // 2021

Today Anna releases ICONS.

Says Anna Phoebe: “I was thinking about the artists and songs I listened to whilst growing up. David Bowie, Nick Cave, Tracy Chapman, Neneh Cherry, Faithless and Roxy Music all represent parts of my past which have, in turn, infused my present. Memories are shape-shifting and full of shadows. They are sometimes reflective, sometimes hugely nostalgic and oftentimes fragmented. I wanted to create a meditative and melodic sound world for these tracks and through this lens reinterpret the songs that shaped me”.
