Norwegian-Kiwi duo Anna of the North are back with their absolute bestest release to date – the video for which they released this week. It’s new single ‘Someone’, and it’s a stunning piece of eighties tinged pop music. It’s almost like a pastiche of the classic ‘Bette David Eyes’ – and with equally as breathtaking an arrangement. And….is….is….is that a key change we detect?! Speaking of the song, the pair say; “We think almost everyone has woken up after a big night, instantly regretting something that happened. It’s about how easy it is to break your promises when you’ve had a couple of drinks. Going deeper, the song is about accepting that you’re only human and to learn how to forgive yourself for your own mistakes and accepting that sometimes we need someone to save us from repeating any old habits.” ‘Someone’ is the second single to be taken from their debut album ‘Lovers’, which comes out later in the summer.
You can find ‘Someone’ on our Best New Synthpop playlist.
