Anni - Stains

Helsinki-based singer/songwriter and pianist Anni (Mattila) has just unveiled her new single called "Stains", which is lifted from her recently released 5-track EP, Redemption Street.

Anni takes classic songwriting and contemporary beats to create an EP that demonstrates an exceptionally strong musical talent. The piano skills she's famous for have been perfectly captured on the songs, and her lyrics carry a rare kind of honesty and empathy. She sounds refreshingly Nordic, and yet her music is undeniably universal.

Speaking on EP, Anni says:

"Redemption Street is about authenticity. It's an anthem to the future generation to be themselves and accept whatever imperfections and scars they might have in life. Once you choose to step into the path of authenticity, you walk through a mental pitch black where you are confronting everything about yourself you have been hiding and denying in order to fit in and be liked. You have to choose mercy and self-love. At the end of this dark journey, is the most awesome life you can imagine. For me, that journey was Redemption Street."

Listen to "Stains" below.
