#3 Anna Lena & The Orchids – View Of My Sanity

‘View Of My Sanity’, the lead track from Anna Lena & The Orchids’ debut EP, is a hell of a way for the Norwegian singer-songwriter to announce herself on to the scene. The mix of drama and beauty – “He’s blocking the view of my sanity,” Anna sings, and she really does sound like a woman on the edge – is remeniscent of FFS favourites Dark Dark Dark, while the influence of the likes of PJ Harvey and Bjork is also clear. Anna launches her EP at London’s Sebright Arms on Friday (March 8), with the official release on March 21.
