Anna Lena and the Orchids - Debut EP Release

Anna LenaAnna Lena's haunting vocal style has been described by UK press as 'unique' and 'ethereal', and the imagery in her lyrics, especially given it being her second language, shows experience and conviction beyond her years.  One fan of her words is Sir Paul McCartney, who she worked with on a song writing tutorial a little while back.

Anna Lena has gradually been building her live presence, performing with her Orchids all over the UK and Norway, counting appearances at Slottsfjell and Liverpool Sound City festivals amongst those that have impressed, as well as a recent and hugely successful Norwegian tour.

She draws influences from St.Vincent, Grizzly Bear, Radiohead, PJ Harvey, Bjork and Ane Brun. Whilst similarities can be observed between her and the above acts, a mixture of folk, alternative rock and ambient musical styles create a uniquely dark, organic sound - ultimately one of her own.

Anna Lena & the Orchids will release her self-titled, debut EP on March 21st 2013.  She will play an EP launch at London’s Sebright Arms on March 8th.
