Knowing is half the battle:

  • Anika spent most of her early life within the economic and political strife offered to young folks in Britain and Germany spurring a political journalism career.
  • After a while she began voicing her journalistic criticisms with musical accompaniment where she was tapped by Bristol, England native and Portishead founder Geoff Barrow.
  • Barrow was looking for a female vocalist to join his side-project Beak> (also performing at ATP AP) and Anika recorded nine tracks with the backing band, which composed her 2010 self-titled debut record.
  • On said Electronic-Punk album, amongst a series of politically fueled numbers, Anika mixed in covers of “Terry” by Lynn Ripley, “End Of The World” by Skeeter Davis, The Kinks’ “I Go To Sleep,” “Yang Yang” by Yoko Ono and an epic seven-and-a-half minute rendition of Bob Dylan’s “Masters Of War.”
  • On June 27th Anika dropped a digital single on her personal Bandcamp account with a B-side featuring a song named “He Needs Me,” and a lead dubbed “No One’s There.”
