Bio

Tasmanian artist Ani Lou releases her first single of the year, 'Godspeed'. Co-produced and co-mixed by Kate Southorn and Lachlan Phillips and Mastered by Heba Kadry (Björk, Slowdive, Beach House, Future Island, John Maus), Ani Lou's newly accomplished single 'Godspeed' is the first release since her 2017 EP 'Eralda' that received support from Unearthed, 4ZZZ, Edge Radio, national music blogs and won Ani Lou support slots with Ali Barter, Husky and Nai Palm. From then until now Ani Lou has been preoccupied with transforming and refining her sound from it's previous minimalistic, angelic ambience to a fresh low-fi, shoe gaze inspired outfit.

Godspeed was recorded at Reel to Reel studios with Zarven Kara. Featuring Kate Southorn on lead guitar, synth and vocals, Zarven Kara on bass, Lachlan Phillips on guitar and Timothy Stoneman on drums and Larry Salzman on percussion. Godspeed is the beginning of a new line of pieces written within the Dream Pop genre, inspired by 80's and 90's synth lines and layered with sweeping, effected guitar countermelodies and captivating vocals.

''Godspeed' is me kind-of metaphorically turning to the sky and asking in my hopelessly-romantic way, "what do you need me to do to be well and happy?” As though someone might listen. As though there's a way to gain "control" over a life. But it’s also a “well, heck, if nobody's controlling this thing, we've got this."' - Ani Lou

i'm under a gentle waterfall, dappled light seeps through and ferns dominate the canopy... oh and i bought my elaborate sound system which is plugged in to my car via several hundred metres of extension cords and i'm playing this.
