Anna Straker: Desert Floor
For me, writing about Anna Straker is like writing my own biography. I'm too involved, too close to it, too worried I might not be able to find the right words. "Serious" will go down as one of my favorite songs of 2016, and that's just 1/4 of this London-based producer and singer-songwriter's much awaited debut EP. Well, that wait is no longer, as Anna's fervent love of synths, sonic experimentation and playful, powerful lyrics are roaming your local digital retailers awaiting consumption. And with endorsements from the likes of Annie Mac, Huw Stephens, and me (duh), you know you're in for a delectable treat.
