The duo, comprised of Arielle Vakni and Vicente Espi, originate from California and Cape Town, South Africa, and make enchanting alternative electronic music that combines elements of both their musical and cultural backgrounds. Drawing on from Vakni’s folk leanings, ‘Overflow’ is the youngest bud on a thriving vine of Vicente’s cerebral beats, lush electronics and iconic vocals - a sound that has fast found its way to being a favourite alongside their founding inspirations Sylvan Esso to Little Dragon.
ANIMA! offer some insight into the message of the song... “When it was written I realized that making music is sort of similar to the process of accepting yourself - you can’t censor or change what comes out of your heart or people won’t relate to you. If it’s truly you, people will hear it and they’ll celebrate it. So basically keep being you, and ANIMA! will keep being ANIMA!!”
Illuminated with sonic imagery, ‘Overflow’ weaves in shimmering chimes and intimate guitar that blossoms into an uplifting chorus. Bringing us to an angelic ascendence for finding the heaven within ourselves, ANIMA!’s newest is another gem to keep close.
Their first release ‘Breathe’ in 2016 was a viral hit and the start to millions of streams from ANIMA!, and ever since their songs have featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday (UK), and charted in Apple Music’s top 10 Alternative releases in the US, and France.
Following recent singles ‘Toughest Man’ and ‘Ear to Ear’, ‘Overflow’ holds ANIMA!’s signature ability to make colorful production indistinguishable from Arielle’s luscious vocal expression, and is bound to win an even wider audience still for the creative duo.
On May 10, ANIMA! arrive with their second album ‘Grow Your Garden’. A bouquet of their diverse influences, a touch of disco, vintage electronic and progressive lyrical expression ties together their album’s message to cultivate things that shape your self growth.
'Grow Your Garden' by ANIMA! is out worldwide on May 10.
