Anna Lena & The Orchids - New Music "Introducing" / Facebook

Anna Lena & The Orchids are a seven piece band based in Liverpool, though Anna Lena the lead vocalist and the songwriter in the band is originally from Norway and the Scandinavian heritage is evident in her voice, a slightly accented ethereal and peaceful vocal which is a real joy to listen to.

Anna self released an EP, 'Child' last year and you can listen to a few tracks below or download from bandcamp. The Hauntingly beautiful title track leads into "Miss Audrie" which gives a perfect insight to the groups alternative folk style, evocative and ambient soundscapes which stand out thanks to pleasing melodic and well-crafted instrumentation.

"Statues" is probably my favourite, a delicate piano introduction leads to a beautiful and dark track, Anna's wistful and serene vocals capable of soothing the headiest of minds before it briefly erupts into a storm of cello and drums.
