Psychedelic songstress ANIQO has shared the video for her latest single, ‘Vivre Libre’. The single appears on her upcoming album, BIRTH which will be released on the 18th of March via SPRINGSTOFF. The album is largely produced by Guy Sternberg (Kings of Convenience, Feist and Yoko Ono). ANIQO has previously worked with Joe Cardamone (Mark Lanegan, Warren Ellis of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds and The Stooges’ former member James Williamson).

The singer has received recognition from the likes of Radio X’s John Kennedy and Radio Live Session Radio1/Berlin, as well as the well-known publications WONDERLAND Magazine, CLASH Magazine, Atwood Magazine, CLOUT, Post Punk, Far Out Magazine, and Psychedelic Baby.

Anita Goß (aka ANIQO) comes from deep family roots in Wismar, where her parents also reside to this day while she is based in Berlin. This is significant in that not only do her current songs that sound very metropolitan - imagine the protagonist in a busy scenario, the streets through which she walks are filled with people full of stories, the side streets dark and mysterious; the music of ANIQO is thereby full of longings. However, it is never the longing for another place, but always for other states of mind.

The singer regularly works with bandmates Torsten Füchsel (aka Pegman), keyboardist Illia Vovk and drummer Alexander Lode. Finding inspiration in the creative likes of David Bowie, Beth Gibbons, John Lennon, and Arcade Fire, her own sound is uniquely complex. Calling to mind artists such as Pink Floyd, Cocteau Twins, Sharon van Etten and Nick Cave who refuse to conform to the norm, ANIQO is not one to be missed.
