Bold and refined singer ANIQO has unveiled her new album BIRTH. With striking female energy at the forefront of a rock landscape, the singer shares her deepest and darkest fears with the listener. Listening to ANIQO one must be prepared to be taken on an emotionally fuelled journey with the musician, and hopefully, find some comfort in her words. The SPRINGSTOFF release features 10 tracks that all have their own unique ambience and energy.
ANIQO elaborates on what the album means to her: “BIRTH stands at the beginning of all things. The journey began 6 years ago for me as both ANIQO and the creation of the album. BIRTH symbolises the process of making the decision to fundamentally change my life and at the same time the path to the inner core… It’s about healing and releasing dark places both inside and outside, breaking down fears and stuck thought structures, loss and the necessity to surrender with self-love. It is an album that wants to light the way through the darkest hours. It will hold your hand during resurrection and transformation.”
This album took several years to come together, and also sounds like it was a treasured learning experience for the songstress as she had to confront a few demons and negative patterns along the way. It definitely sounds like making this project was a cathartic experience. That is essentially what art is supposed to be – on one hand it should be an escape from your mind, but in turn also an outlet to find healing.
