EERA Reveals New Video for Debut Single ‘White Water’

‘EERA’ is the new project of Anna Lena, of the eponymous Anna Lena and the Orchids. She’s rebranded herself, and is making sure she’s a force to be reckoned with within the Scandi-pop scene. 

‘White Water’ opens with a sombre guitar chord, then in comes that voice. An almost eerie, enchanting siren call, the entire song is reminiscent of Channy Leaneagh, lead vocalist of synthpop revival band Poliça. EERA’s voice somehow manages to creep up on you yet still have a calming and natural presence. 

This song could easily fit the soundtrack to cult-classic neo Noir film ‘Drive’. Creepily folky with subtle polished pop elements sprinkled on for good measure.

The track transcends, with steady percussion and guitars teamed with poetic vocals. The build-up is subtle, but stunning nonetheless. 

With looks channelling Marina and the Diamonds crossed with Björk (note the obnoxiously 90s glitter eyebrows and interesting androgynous face), the avant-garde direction of the video perfectly matches the song itself. 

This isn’t usually my go-to genre, but EERA has piqued my interest. Maybe it’s her echoey presence and Norwegian beauty, but it really hits my ears in the right way. I’ll definitely be on the lookout for her further releases, and who knows, I might even start sporting glitter ‘brows myself and singing against a metallic backdrop.
