anaïs arrived earlier this year, introduced by her brilliant critically-lauded first track ‘nina’ – an ode to her hero Nina Simone. Last week, the fascinating new artist followed up with her excellent debut EP ‘Before Zero’ to the world, featuring brand new single ‘Set In Stone’.
 
Her debut EP – ‘Before Zero’ – began life when anaïs was studying at NYU at their highly prestigious Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music where her friends and contemporaries were Arca and Gallant. With a move to London in the Spring of 2015 she began to make connections and further her music.  It was these particular words from Nina Simone - “I’ll tell you what freedom is to me, no fear” – that heavily inspired the writing of her debut EP, unsurprisingly, the first track she shared back in January is an ode to her hero.  You can watch the Campbell Addy directed video for ‘nina’ here and the video for her new single ‘set in stone’ above.

Alongside the exquisite ‘nina’ on the EP sit two more original tracks – ‘Window’ and brand new single ‘Set In Stone’. The 4th track is a wonderfully moving cover of Charles Aznavour’s ‘La Mamma’.  ‘Set In Stone’ is a enthralling change of tempo from ‘nina’ as anaïs begins to flex her song-writing muscles  – demonstrating just how bigger prospect she is, beautifully framing a very powerful message within the home of a perfectly moulded pop record.
 
Speaking on writing ‘Set In Stone’, anaïs reveals - “Back when I was living in New York my friend used to constantly tell to me “stop fighting the current”. I wrote ‘Set In Stone’ about that; the “fixed” mind-set that I had for so long about how things should and have to be. Once I let go and allowed myself to be more fluid, things began to drastically change in my life. Being in London, in the studio, living my dreams, and writing ‘Set In Stone’ was evidence of that.”
 
The ‘Before Zero EP’ trackless is as follows:
 
1. Nina
2. Set In Stone
3. Window
4. La Mamma
