On February 5th the Amsterdam based artist ANNNA released her debut EP “Mortgage On Toast”. The singer loves to surprise her fans with something refreshing each release and this one was no exception. ANNNA celebrated the release performing the title track of the EP while driving through a carwash on Instagram and Youtube live.
This was one of a kind, three minute long performance where she, and the producer of the song, Bastian Benjamin, were dancing and singing in the car. Loads of water splashing around the car, pink lights and a multimedia experience using 5 cameras. Everything was filmed in and around Tesla that represents the title track’s story about materialism.
“Mortgage On Toast‘‘ includes a set of songs that tell an autobiographical journey through the 21st century millennial problems. Kids who were born in the 90s with an idea that ‘everything is possible’. Each song of the EP addresses a certain unclarity that ANNNA or her friends have to deal with in this day and age. From being able to buy an avocado toast for 15 $ at a fancy hipster restaurant and to being able to buy a house.
The EP starts with a “career vs burnout” dilemma and concludes with a sarcastic story about our lives in 2021. Global warming, fast fashion and other alarming subjects are already on the ANNNA’s previous release list.
She has proudly produced and written most of the songs in the EP. Meanwhile, two songs of the EP are a collaboration with the Dutch producer Bastian Benjamin. As a part of the release, the singer will also be sending out a set of virgin cocktails per post in order to cheer with her biggest fans. You’ll be able to order the ‘Mortgage On Toast’ celebration package on ANNNA’s merch shop, annnaofficial.com soon.
