Sparse Space: Anna’s “Electric Dreams”

An appropriately big couple of months coming up for Big Love Records. They’ve got a new release coming soon from Aya Gloomy, and they also have new artist Anna, whose “Electric Dreams” is very sparse and very simple. A very simple melody, accented only by some faint synths and a few trippy wooshes, which allows her to sing simple, monotone words over. It’s almost too basic, but Anna (real name Nana Yamato) makes great use of it, milking repetition until her words turn hypnotic and ever-so-slightly unnerving. Listen above.
