Anna & the Sea (Anna Lindström) is an up-and-coming Swedish artist that debuted in 2018 with the two EP:s Söräng and Out of the Blue.
Söräng and Out of the Blue were recorded in Stockholm at studio Ljudbjörnen and all tracks are produced and written by Anna Lindström and mixed by Måns Lundberg.
She has secretly been working on her own material since 2003, but it never felt like the right place or time to put everything together, until now.
After playing around in a friend’s studio in 2017, things started to fall into place. Anna brought her demos and recorded them again but now together with a number of musicians from the Swedish music scene.
In 2019 she recorded a second version of Will You Let Me Wear Your Shirt Tonight after the first recording met an unfortunate fate:
“Will You Let Me Wear Your Shirt Tonight came to me when I studied music production several years ago. I stayed in the school's studio and lost track of time until a security guard threw me out. The song remained on the school's server and when I returned it was gone, but somehow it got stuck in my head and I have never forgotten it after all these years."
The result is indie-pop with a cinematic and dynamic sound, featuring organic instrumentation with baroque pop and folk-rock influences together with Anna’s unpolished voice that reminds of Kate Bush, Lana del Rey, and Joni Mitchell.
The singles Lake Como and Picking up a Dream was featured by Spotify in their playlist Indie Highlights and got picked up by Swedish national radio and found fans amongst music blogs and magazines such as HYMN, Mystic Sons, Medium, Popmuzik, Popmani, and Indietronica.
Will You Let Me Wear Your Shirt Tonight was featured by Spotify in their playlists Aktuellt and Bara ballader.
