Keen on Annakin’s music!

Annakin’s new radio single „The Trooper“ – of her upcoming Album „Icarus Heart“ – tells the story of a deserting soldier. The Swiss artist plays with the double meaning of her lyrics, and it soon becomes obvious that this song is actually about love.
Dimitri Tikovoï, who has worked with bands such as Placebo, Sophie Ellis Bextor or Guesch Patti, produced this subtle track for Annakin in the legendary Assault & Battery studios in London. Catchy synthesizer melodies, drum loops that make you shake your head and a fat bassline dominate the sound of „The Trooper“.

The Trooper

Lyrics by Annakin

The timing bad a hand that shivered
An ardent trooper was taking the blame
He put the arrow back in the quiver
Too remote was his aim

You open the brightest window
To see him stumble properly
Something’s itching between your shoulders
Bite your lips bite your lips

Are the crumbs still there that stain your eye
Are you still confusing parts and hearts with brain
Will you recognize the songs that reflect your light
When you are on the flipside of pain

When more is simply not enough
One is the number of beginning to stop
It gets cold inside your world
Because something got torn apart

There’s no place in the world you’d rather be
You can hear your heart sinking
There’s no place in the world you’d rather be

How much does the trooper take
Too much of it will empty his eyes
On page defined positions change
He is deserting to your surprise


In her second radio single „Alive“ taken from the highly acclaimed album „Torch Songs“, Annakin turns to a rockier sound compared to previous single releases. The catchy and warm tunes of the banjo, Adrian Weyermann’s unique guitar sounds and Annakin’s extraordinarily alterable voice are characteristic for this upbeat song. With “Alive” the drummer and composer Matthias Kräutli and Annakin’s producer Jono Buchanan have created a real street hit for Annakin, which will infect everyone who hears it with spring fever.
