Electronic duo Anna of the North (Anna Lotterud & Brady Daniell-Smith) today unveil new single “Oslo”, transporting you to a crisp, wintery walk through the streets of their city. It’s an icy, reflective synth-pop cut which beautifully marries the coldness of the climate with the warm sensation of home. It’s got all the allure and emotion we now expect from Anna of the North, and follows the success of Anna & Brady’s previous singles “Sway”, “The Dreamer” “Baby” and most recently “Us”.
The idea for the track came from a photo of the city that Brady from the band had, “I’d never been to Oslo. It seemed so untouched and really captured my imagination”. The song began to form a few winters back, written as gift for a group of homesick Norwegian friends that Brady had met in Australia. He continues, “I met Anna soon after and we finished it together – she brought an authenticity to it that makes it feel like a love letter to the city.”
The duo’s songs have been streamed over 40 million times, and caught the attention from tastemakers like Fader, NYLON, Noisey, Pigeons and Planes and Gorilla Vs Bear and have risen to the top of the Hype Machine charts. “Sway” also garnered an official remix from certified hit makers, The Chainsmokers.
Anna Of The North have recently played Pitchfork Music Festival, completed an arena tour with Kygo, as well as a run of UK shows with Liss. The band play Eurosonic Festival on Jan 13th. Further live dates to be announced soon. ‘Oslo’ is out now via Honeymoon / Different Recordings.
“Oslo” was premiered on FADER and is the official version of the track which surfaced online as a demo and has grown to be a fan favorite.
