GEN Y SONGSTRESS ANIKIKO RESONATES WITH A FUSION OF SEXY SOUNDS

Giving Bjork and Portishead a run for their money, the quirky and sensuous AniKiko launches with an explosive 2010!

Aussie-Czech vocalist AniKiko is one to watch. Compared to Beth Gibbons, the leading lady of Portishead, AniKiko is making a name for herself as the next big thing on Australia’s alternate music scene. Ignore this and you may soon be kicking yourself – this is one singer/songwriter that you’ll soon be hearing about regularly.

Influenced by jazz greats and electronic pioneers, AniKiko effortlessly pushes boundaries with her genre-bending style and luscious performance. “AniKiko is the ‘new’ Portishead of the Y Generation…a crossover of all the best elements of jazz, folk and downbeats” says Departure Lounge, 2SER.

It’s difficult to categorise AniKiko’s music into one neat pigeonhole. Inspired by musical greats of many eras and genres, her sound is at once mellow yet edgy, uplifting yet calming, sexy yet coy. Her voice takes you on a journey of which you have no choice but be carried along; not that you wouldn’t want to be. She can change a mood in a moment simply by altering the pitch of her soothing and honest voice, which always seems to rise above the emotive instrumentals that accompany it.

AniKiko comes straight from recent gigs at prestigious Japan Music Week in Tokyo, and a club tour of Prague, (Czech Republic). With the haunting quality of Portishead, soul of Billie Holiday, passion of Arethra Franklin, romance of Jeff Buckley, beats of the Presets, and quirkiness of Bjork; AniKiko’s unique sound is mesmerising.

No wallflower, AniKiko takes over her performance space, cheekily interacting with the audience and captivating the attention of every person in the room. Said to have a healing quality, her music and lyrics open doors by transporting the listener out of the everyday.



Songwriter/producer, Anikiko has married her love of beats, and soulful vocals yet still have her favourite instruments the double bass and trumpet in the mix to be a warm bed for her poetry to lay in. She has been exploring the world of production and is headed for a collision of sounds that bend genres in all sorts of directions.
AniKiko’s future is bright with secured co-writing/production relationships that are paving a long future in the music industry as she continues to push her song writing, performance and production skills to new heights.
