New Band of the Day @ The Guardian on July 29th!!!
"This bafflingly brilliant Brazilian's 'sci-fi torch songs' sound like jungle music from a galaxy far, far away"
-Paul Lester, The Guardian
"...evocative of the great French singers of the sixties and seventies like Françoise Hardy, and other hand, feline and experimental...a collection of stylized songs full of expressionism, avant-pop textures and noir fantasies." -Felinno blog (*spanish translation my own)
"It’s absolutely stunning...This is a music that is completely its own... “Last Night, I Lit the Moon” is a subtle, but ambitiously bold marrying of human possibility and the concept album...As soon as you begin to build a picture of this fictive nom de plume, she disappears behind macabre melody, shadowy lyricism and unearthly imagination. These tracks come highly recommended"
- Their Bated Breath
"Lyrically, it's David Bowie meets Scott Walker: Anna-Anna's creations aren't just songs, they're poems that will take a breath or two out of you. The pieces in Last Night I Lit The Moon may come from a very personal place, but they also speak to the universal human experience. Perhaps the best way to describe her music is in her own words: "Basically the idea that we can re-organize "reality" according to our dreams, not the other way around ... the idea that music provides alternate models of existence that can be inhabited by anyone."
