 Madrid, Madrid, ESP


The Pop-Folk singer song-writer Ana López (Malaga, 1988) has been adding members to her fans club ever since she put in her myspace some songs. Nowadays, she has her oficial album and it has her oficial album and it has meant that fame has exploted.
Anni B Sweet takes part in that small group of international indie artists who, with their music, can affect and reach the wide public, indie and no indie. Who could resist to listen that melodies and that crystal clear voice which is able to break and reconstruct itself at the same time? If there is still good taste in the World, “Start,Restart Undo” should be an succes.

Anni invents songs since was 7 years old, and it feels. At the beginning, her songs were a capella inprovisations that she invented from her father’s backseat, drafts of songs inspired by which she saw or felt in that moment. She was good at doing pop freestyle on samples of a toy organ too. Then, she played in a different bands: one band of versions, other who took it seriously and rock’n’roll band. At the end of the road (or at the brilliant beginning) in songs who sings alone, we can obserb her personal version of the legacy of Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Kate Bush or Cat Power. In Madrid, she recorded a demo with Brian Hunt (exmember of Russian Red, Templeton or Half Foot Outside) and Javier Doria (The Melecotons), and the rest came alone. She obtained total success on myspace, she won a demo competition of Arindelle Records and EGO, number one of the best demos in 2008 according to Mondo Sonoro magazine, shows crammed with people, one invitation to be support band of Antonio Vega or, at last but not least, in capacity as star signing in the FIB… without her album was for sale.

The future of this girls should sweet, like her artistic surname or the songs of this first album. “Start, Restart Undo” says the title, and it wants to mean that nobody can resign oneself but we have to fight (softly) for the life or music which we look forward to. For this reason, we can listen these first twelve songs of Anni B Sweet , with a simple appearance but with elaborated musical arrangement , a sumptuous instrumentation and sonorous jugglings. Brian Hunt do it very well like in the demo.
For the time being, we forget of thinking about the cannon of classic folk and making comparisons with Micachu, St. Vicent and other naughty girls of modern pop art. There are sweet songs too, but these molodies of a park in spring contain difficult questions; doubts about feelings of oneself, daily anxiety, latent trauma… “Mr. D” is a clear example of this expression of feelings. All album is in english except “Tumbado en mi moqueta azul” which is the only song in spanish and no composed by her.
At the end, we usually find a ray of sunlight slip in our window : she forget, forgive and win. So we win hearing to her.
