There are multiple artists with the name Anika
1. Anika Henderson, post-punk/avant garde/dub
"Political Journalist" isn't a credential we usually have in musician's bios, but this is exactly what Anika was doing while living between Berlin and Bristol earlier this year when she met Geoff Barrow. The producer was looking for a new singer to work with his band Beak>, and it was immediately clear they shared the same musical vision, including a love of punk, dub and 60s girl groups.

so the truth is, all my lyrics are from the depth of my unconsciousness and music is like a therapy that weasels them out and during the trance, someone presses record. Sometimes the lyrics get a bit personal but by the end of the song, i've worked through the issues that sometimes i was carrying around for years. I am lucky enough to work with extremely talented artists and musicians, that somehow set the perfect environment of trust and letting go, for the mind to open and for the bile to flow. I hope that through sharing this experience, it can help other people shed this stuff that we unnecessarily carry around for years and that eats us up inside. It's better to talk about things then to let things get bitter and for these emotions to turn our hands in different ways. Music has many uses. Don't forget it. And don't forget to talk about things instead of keeping it inside, bottled up and brewing. It turns into viscousness and resentment, which make us do strange things.
