Anna of the North has built her career off taking heartbreak and reshaping it into composed, headstrong electro-pop.

The Norwegian artist’s 2017 debut album Lovers introduced her as an authentically sensitive singer fresh off a broken relationship. Unlike most break-up albums however, Anna of the North used breezy synths, heady percussion, and cursive vocals to communicate her emotional fatigue. In many ways, she seemed to combat her anguish with dance rather than tears. 

This past year, the release of her sophomore album Dream Girl saw her former heartbreak convert to voguish resilience. Her music is still a catalyst to dance, but Dream Girl emphasizes a much lighter, more upbeat pop sound from someone who has clearly grown more self-assured and carefree. As a result, her live show on Thursday, February 20th at Brighton Music Hall is not only bound to bring the energy you’d expect from an electro-pop show, but the infectious fun and optimism of someone who wears their confidence on their sleeve.

Enter before 10PM on Wednesday, February 19th for a chance to win two tickets to the show!
