Berlin-based artist Anne Haight is excited to announce the release of her new album In the Darkness on June 3rd on the Broken Palace label. Her music is an enchanting fusion of indie pop and electronica that uses piano, guitar, electronic beats and analogue synth pads to create a truly unique sound. In the Darkness evokes Scandinavian charm with its catchy indie pop melodies and intriguing musical diversity, all carried by masterful lyrical sensitivity.
Anne Haight is no dark horse. In 2012 she won the Radio Award of the Berlin-based radio station Radio Fritz as “Best Act Music“ at the “Fritz Night of Talents“ and participated in “Popcamp“, a national support program for emerging German pop artists. In the following years she released multiple singles while quietly producing her solo debut.
After her duo partner left the project in 2014 she decided to keep going as a solo artist and she reworked the album completely. The album took over a year to produce despite an initial projected timeline of three weeks. Rather than rushing through the production process, Haight took her time to focus on a finely-tuned musical aesthetic and often found herself spending her nights working on the album in lieu of than sleeping. The result of her nightly sessions are eleven haunting songs that embrace an electronic tact more than the majority of her earlier works. In every track her warm, enchanting voice lingers gently over sounds of atmospheric synthesizers and distant background choirs that melt with soft guitar patterns and sparse piano parts. Her sound has evolved into a more epic one than her previous recordings, and yet her music still retains a distinctly intimate feeling.
Haight notes that the multiple producers who contributed to the album over the two year production cycle had a substantial influence on her musical style. In the Darkness is the result of Anne’s collaborations with the Danish producers John Gordon and Thomas Stengaard and Andrew Pegram from Manche.
