Lost My Faith
The last year has seen anaïs rise to become one of the most enigmatic new voices. Using her varied life (whether studying the violin in France or staying silent for seven months while adjusting to life in Ireland), she has shaped the unique sound of her music to make an important statement about the world as she finds it. With her rich, powerful voice, she’s been able to communicate those experiences around discussions of race, selfhood and resistance without shying away from saying the things that need to be said but for obvious reasons are not said in most “pop” music. Her recent full length project ‘Darkness At Play’ with producer Om’Mas Keith and her debut EP which preceded it ‘Before Zero’ demonstrated this and have been influential amongst a growing audience setting her stall as a fearless new talent.
‘Lost My Faith’ is the start of a brand-new chapter, finding anaïs sounding braver and bolder than ever. It’s the first single to come from her debut album (expected later this year) and as such, delivers an important first taste of what is to come. Combining art with politics, ‘Lost My Faith’ carries a powerful message having been inspired by her first hand view of radicalised police brutality in the US and resultant loss of faith in the systems and institutions that are supposed to govern on our behalf.
