The talented singer-songwriter Anna Madsen is no newcomer to the music industry having already released her debut album, but now she is back with with her sophomore effort, Whisper, which picks up where she left off.
Anna has developed a unique style of pop that fuses elements of electronic, orchestral and alternative styles that make for a captivating listen. ‘Palm Reader’ is one of her tracks that encapsulates this musical aesthetic and the video that accompanies it is a gripping watch if nothing else with a truly engaging story line- you won’t be able to take your eyes off it (or your ears, for that matter).
Having previously been part of the Mormon faith, Anna finds a lot of inspiration from this part of her life, although she is no longer active in the church. She acknowledges that it formed a key part of her personality and within these personalities, Anna believes that they reflect equally the dark and light within all of us; something she tries to depict in her songs.
Her new album, which was released in March of this year, attempts to balance this antagonism between light and dark and to support it, Anna is heading out on tour- check out her dates below:
