About Anika

Whether working on her own, with her band Exploded View, or with other artists, Anika's cool, clear alto vocals and surreal songwriting are unmistakable. On her 2010 self-titled debut album -- which she recorded with Geoff Barrow's band Beak> -- she juxtaposed deadpan covers of cult favorite pop songs with textures and atmospheres indebted to the spaciest dub and chilliest post-punk. With Exploded View, she expressed the personal and political in dreamlike ways on the stream-of-consciousness grooves of albums such as 2018's Obey, while artists like T.Raumschmiere and Tricky borrowed some of her glacial cool for their collaborations. When she returned to her solo career with 2021's Change, Anika revealed more impassioned and immediate facets of her music.
