ANAMAI

Quiet confessions released in a vast, amorphous lake of noise
Baby is a word dropped like a pebble down a well. How much water's at the bottom? Would it kill me if I fell?
lyrics from Lucia

ANAMAI is the experimental folk project of Anna Mayberry (HSY) and David Psutka (Egyptrixx, Hiawatha). Existingin the unsettled space between ancient past and imagined future, ANAMAI explores the contradictory nature of intimacy by releasing quiet confessions in a vast, amorphous lake of noise. Naked, resonant minimalism; ethereal and liquid. Chambered vocals and droning guitarslap each other up while looming silence threatens to extinguish them.

Their debut full-length record, Sallows, released on Buzz Records (03/10) demonstrates Anna’s and David's inventive way of using frequency to create parallel yet dichotomizing space. The album finds a way to entrance the listener with an almost dreary, unforgiving weight.
