Biography


ANAMAI is
the experimental folk project of Anna Mayberry (HSY) and David Psutka
(Egyptrixx, Hiawatha, Ceramic TL). Existing in the unsettled space between
ancient past and imagined future, ANAMAI explores the contradictory nature of intimacy by releasing quiet
confessions in a vast, amorphous lake of noise. Naked, resonant minimalism;
ethereal and liquid.  Chambered vocals and droning guitars lap each
other up while looming silence threatens to extinguish them.


 


Their debut full-length record, Sallows, released on Buzz Records
(03/10) demonstrates Anna’s and David's inventive way of using frequency to
create parallel yet dichotomizing space. The album finds a way to entrance the
listener with an almost dreary, unforgiving weight.
