New Music Tuesday 29 - Anne
Posted by Lucy Hughes on May 21, 2014
A weekly feature here at The Great Divide Blog is our New Music Tuesday; introducing you to an artist or band you may not have heard of. We can’t guarantee that you won’t have heard of them, but if that’s the case, it might give you a little reminder to revisit them sometime soon.
Firstly, apologies for the two weeks break in musical services! I spent part of those two weeks on holiday and thought I’d take the other half to do something very important for this feature and discover some new music. It’s such a refreshing feeling actually searching for something new, using a band or label or genre or well, anything you love as a starting point and exploring from there. So, if like me, you opened Deezer/Spotify recently and wasn’t that excited to see your synced list, it’s time for you to get out there and us to help you do that.
Someone who I’ve been listening to for the first time properly this week is Anne, on the always-good Run for Cover records. I tend to feature Run for Cover records a lot because for me, they really are one of the best out there and a musician like Anne proves they’re a lot more than your everyday punk label. Anne is like the sexy, seedy, gothic younger brother who got into way weirder post-punk bands than his older punk brother ever bothered to.
Their debut LP “Pulling Chain” has been getting a lot of plays from me lately as we enter British summertime. There’s something about its dark and dirty gothic dance anthems with post-punk rhythmic tendencies that juxtapose the weather quite nicely. Check out “Blonde Men” from the “Pulling Chain” LP below.
