#405 Gianna Lauren – Anchor Down

Toronto’s Gianna Lauren studied jazz, and there’s a sultry, dusky feel to the single ‘Anchor Down’ which wouldn’t feel out of place in some smoky basement club. The track is about what it means to settle down, as Lauren explains: “The lyric ‘what have you been saying, I wasn’t listening’ is a reference to a conversation I was having with my old-school Italian nana about settling down. Turns out we have different ideas of what that looks like.” ‘Anchor Down’ is taken from the forthcoming On Personhood EP, which will be available free on Soundcloud from May 5.
