British-born Annika Henderson, aka Anika, subverts the music industry’s dominant paradigms in unexpected ways. The twenty-four-year-old singer recently released her debut long player - a mélange of dubby, rough-around-the-edges protest music with monotone vocals that sounds like Nico for the post-post-rave generation.
Anika is not your everyday singer-songwriter.


Singer-Songwriter / Electronic / Post-Punk

Annika Henderson is a musician, poet, ex-political journalist and artist who rose to fame as ANIKA with two highly acclaimed eponymous records (Recorded with Geoff Barrow of Portishead and his band Beak>, released on Invada UK and Stones Throw in the US). She is well known as a DJ too, hosts a radio program on BCR (Berlin Community Radio), is seen and heard in experimental cinema and collaborates with a variety of artists and musicians among them Jandek, Shackleton, Michael Rother (Neu!), Dave Clarke (Skint), Andreas Reihse of Kreidler, T.Raumschmiere (Sleeping Pills and Habits), Doireann O'Malley, Ricardo Domeneck, Stine Omar / Max Boss (EASTER), Phillip Geist (for a live video mapping project and soundtrack in Tehran, Iran) or Yann Tiersen. In 2016, Anika released a self-titled debut album with her Mexico City-based project, Exploded View. In 2017, we saw Anika release a string of new material comprising of two releases with new partners, Shackleton and Dave Clarke, a live performance project involving a lyric writing robot, and a follow-up EP from her Mexico-City based band, Exploded View. In 2018, Anika and her Mexico City-based project, Exploded View embarked on an extensive EU tour with performances at Bad Bonn Kilbi and Villette Sonique. The band then went on to release their much-awaited sophomore LP, Obey, in late September on Sacred Bones US, followed by a tour in the US and Canada.
