Anois – Tree House Whispers
In the north of Germany two young kids try to build their own interpretation of these feelings. Far from the world, settled right on the top floor, with two dormer windows where the rain drips on when it’s unpleasant outside, the two kids record their fragile folk-electronica songs with simple instruments.
They play guitar, melodica, fan organ, glockenspiel and other acoustic things, while the floorboards creak and the chairs rumble. Everything around is going to be recorded, when they use their voices. And then the glitchy blips and bleeps join the songs to get the taste of electronica.
Lars Kranholdt and Anne Baier are Anois. Two voices that maybe remind you of your own lost heart or of your traces in the cold white snow, when it’s winter outside. It looks simple, but it really takes some time to understand.
The music of Anois is complex though this few instruments because of these fragile elements, which sound also timid, but built this strong and great atmosphere, where you can hide if the days need to be muted.
