Second Single Released!
Linaire is the songwriting project of Montreal-based composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist, Anna Atkinson. Uncluttered electronic beats and ethereal synths combine with incandescent strings and poetically lucid lyrics to produce music that is at once spacious and full. Like plastic antiques, the songs feel both timeless and contemporary in their exploration of presence, anxiety, curiosity, lineage and identity. Linaire’s debut album will be out in 2020.
March 31, 2020 - I recorded this on the first time in over a week that I felt like playing music. I’ve been feeling anxious and disoriented, as I’m sure we all are to some extent. I wrote this song while I was at the Banff International Songwriter Residency - began it on my first day, finished it two days before I left. It’s about personal vs. collective struggles. I had no idea just how relevant it would feel to me just one week later. We’re all in this together. Sending love and light to you all.
