It’s always a pleasure to hear new music. There is something about the range of a sultry sounding songstress that always makes you stop and listen. That happens to be the case with singer-songwriter ANE. She can sing about almost anything and make it sound good. The Korean-American artist recently dropped a visual for “R.S.D.”, a song reflecting on something we all know about…toxic love.
The Jersey native is heavily inspired by the Beatles, Stevie Wonder, and TLC. All of those influences are evident in her sound. Her name, pronounced “Ann-nee” is an acronym for “A New Era”. Even though she is a new school artists, she definitely comes through with a solid vintage sound. When speaking about her latest single she says,
”R.S.D. is a song about toxic love. It’s the kind of love that captivates you and consumes you at the same time. You blindly fall into this trap where you would rather crash and burn together than make it out alone. The original name for the song was called “Fatal Love” but I changed it to “R.S.D.” because I wanted it to be more elusive. The acronyms stand for the words in the chorus but at the same time can allude to being a drug because at the end of the day that is what this kind of a love is.”
We are definitely digging her sound. Press play on the video clip above and check for her full interview with Okayplayer here.
