Bio

Tasmanian born artist ‘Ani Lou’ releases her first single of 2019, 'Bad Body'.

The first release since Ani Lou’s shoe-gaze inspired single ‘Godspeed’ (2018), ‘Bad Body’ is a fitting succession into the dreampop-realm. Co-produced by Kate Southorn and Lachlan Phillips, mixed by Antonia Gauci (Vallis Alps, Kučka, Mansionair,) and Mastered by Matthew Redlich (Dan Sultan, Holy Holy, Ainslie Wills) ‘Bad Body’ is an assured blow to the heart.
Studded with affecting vocals, 70’s inspired synth lines, ambient guitar layering and apparent meaning ‘Bad Body’ is an intimate song of substance that can catch its listeners off-guard.

“’Bad Body’ is a song for those who have felt out of control in relation to themselves
and their surroundings. It explores the lack of self-trust I have experienced within my physical body throughout years of chronic illness.”

Recorded at Reel to Reel studios with Zarven Kara. Featuring Kate Southorn on guitar and vocals, Lachlan Phillips on keyboard/synth, Zarven Kara on bass and guitar, Timothy Stoneman on drums/percussion and James Nutting on Backing Vocals. ‘Bad Body’ is released alongside a customarily earnest yet kooky video co-directed by Kate herself and videographer Jade Elford.

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.
