Anna of the North is the a recent (as of last year) musical import from Scandinavia – her social media accounts literally state “Scandinavia” except for Twitter – which specifies “Norway.”
Last week, she released “Baby” – a dreamy yet heartsick electropop track evoking both the ghosts of past relationships (“Baby – am I still the one you think you know?”) and the anxiety (and excitement) of a potential romance (You make my heart start beating in my chest. Baby, hold tight. Don’t fight it.) – much the way Sorcha Richardson’s “Petrol Station” portrays excitement and regret about love.
