The track is the first glimpse of a bold new direction for the artist.
Melding lush indie pop soundscapes with her immersive and vulnerable songwriting, Anna Shoemaker showcases her bold and more mature direction for her sound on new release ‘Sick!’. The track is cathartic and often hauntingly honest, as the artist traverses the end of a toxic relationship and the conflicting emotions that come with it.
“’Sick!’ is about missing that adrenaline rush a toxic relationship brings you and how it can be mistaken for missing the person,” Anna says.
The honesty and often bleak nature of the narrative provides a stark contrast to a fun and energetic sound, the conversational nature of the lyrics ground the track in a masterful way, feeling almost like an intimate exchange between friends as opposed to a song.The track, and this unapologetically forthright new sound, are set to be part of an upcoming 2022 album, and if ‘Sick!’ is anything to go by, Anna could be onto something really resonating and powerful.
