In 2020, a dumpster fire of a year, we've at least gotten some good music. I mean, silver linings, amIrite? I keep going now for Kylie (Minogue, I'm over 30) and Annie. Also, I went MIA for a while because I chose to focus on the Job Blog for a while.
So Annie (my personal favorite Norwegian pop star EVER) is back with a new album, "Dark Hearts," which will drop in October. But Annie has been gradually releasing tracks one by one since the start of summer (or whenever, cuz 2020).
Today she released the title track, "Dark Hearts." It follows suit of the darkwave pattern she's been leaning toward, which is a more somber departure from her previous work (save maybe "Russian Kiss.") However, "The Bomb" and "American Cars" (her other two released tracks) have a heavier sound than "Dark Hearts." "Dark Hearts" may live up to its title, but it can't hide its pop sensibility in the end.
The whole album will be out on October 16th. Listen to "Dark Hearts' below:
