New Heavenly signing Anna Burch nails upbeat dreamy indie on "Tea-Soaked Letter"

06 December 2017, 12:30 | Written by Erin Bashford

Detroit-based artist Anna Burch, the most recent signing to UK indie label Heavenly Recordings, has announced her debut record Quit The Curse.

Comparisons to Courtney Barnett, Waxahatchee, and Eleanor Friedberger lie within her tight songwriting and infectious lyrics, and in the album's first single, which is as soaked in sun as the titular letter is in tea, Burch combines upbeat guitars with her woozy vocals in a way that is feisty and compelling.

"Writing songs that I actually liked for the first time gave me a feeling of accomplishment," Burch says of her music. "Like, I can do this too! But working with other musicians and hearing the songs go from sad singer/songwriter tunes to arranged pop songs gave me this giddy confidence that I'd never felt before."

Quit The Curse is out 2 March 2018 via Heavenly Recordings/Polyvinyl (US). Pre-order now.
