New striking strokes
17 January 2022
Who:: Fascinating Berlin-based artist Annika Henderson who released
her wayward, self-titled solo debut LP in 2010. She also made two
notable LPs with Exploded View. You can stream Obey (2018) and
Exploded View (2016) here.
Anika released her newest solo album CHANGE last
July. One of the most intriguing longplayers of 2021.
Anika: “It’s a moment caught in time. This album had been planned for a little
while and the circumstances of its inception were quite different to what had been
expected. This colored the album quite significantly. The lyrics were all written there
on the spot. It’s a vomit of emotions, anxieties, empowerment, and of thoughts like,
“How can this go on? How can we go on?”
Along with a tour starting soon (I just heard that her Brussels gig is postponed,
what a bummer) in Europe, then to the UK and America, a record of 6 remixes
of Change songs will see the day of light on 11th February.

She turned the song into a trippy and vibrant electro beat-breaker. Anika‘s distorted
voice changes the mood of the original song. More mystifying and mesmeric, more
