A rich and ambient direction, filled with warm and textured aesthetics
Following on from the release of her stunning 2017 full-length ‘Closure’, an album which was lauded across numerous outlets including Stereogum, CLASH, The Line Of Best Fit, DIY and many more, Swedish-born but Berlin-based singer songwriter Adna has now unveiled the details behind her next LP ‘Black Water’ with the release of her latest single ‘Darkness Born In Youth’.
Much like her work to date, ‘Black Water’ sees her channel a rich and ambient direction, filled with warm and textured aesthetics. With her smooth and seductive voice layered over a heady mix of bright and enticing production, her latest collection looks set to become one of her most praised to date.
Adna’s latest offering follows on from the unfiltered emotion of ‘Don’t Know’, giving us a clear insight into the understated balladry that we can expect on this forthcoming full-length. Conjuring up more of the raw and poignant direction she is known for, ‘Darkness Born In Youth’ spotlights her soulful presence. Recorded in one-take, the track is accented by softly plucked guitar and her trademark soaring vocal.
Speaking about the new release, she says, “It’s hard not to sound pretentious about it, but this is really just a very honest improvisation that I recorded for my own memory in case I would forget about it. The title refers to the sensitivity I often find myself thinking of as a burden… I guess most people have had to end relationships, wishing it could have been with someone else instead.”
To date, Adna has made three beautifully woeful albums; 2014’s ‘Night’, 2015’s’ Run, Lucifer’ and the album ‘Closure’ in 2017. Supporting ‘Closure’, Adna played a packed Eurosonic showcase in 2017 and toured throughout Germany, UK, France and Scandinavia in the months since its release. Adna’s music has had more than 50 million streams on the large DSPs, and has had her melancholic, lo-fi work compared to the likes of Bon Iver and Daughter.
