Five years after her debut album, aNNika released her second studio album "LUV“ in March 2020 (Kleio Records). Similar to a short story volume, the Viennese singer/songwriter tells of her experiences in episodes and in a charming band-in-a-room setup. In some parts, the voice of aNNika, aka Annika Prey, is reminiscent of legendary icons like Dolores O’Riordan (The Cranberries) or Alanis Morissette whilst dwelling in calmer waters occasionally resembles Mira Lu Kovacs (5K HD, Schmieds Puls). Other listeners associate the Viennese songwriter with such greats as Björk, Feist or Ani DiFranco. aNNika's second album LUV contains her long thought and distilled choice of ten songs making a listening experience that is of itself more than the sum of its parts, a whole cohesive work. It brings you to hear a singers crystal clear voice over playful band arrangements in a sound as though you are sitting in a cozy living room. For LUV, aNNika (vocals, guitar, ukulele) teamed up with producer Thomas Böck with whom she worked together on the sound of her band, consisting of Joana Karácsonyi (cello, choral singing), Lukas Popp (double bass, choral singing) and Sebastian Simsa (drums, choral singing). The band-in-a-room character of the production can be seen as the guiding thread of the album and perfectly underlines the hesitant-charming, yet prominent, clear voice of aNNika.
