– GLASTONBURY –

I played Glastonbury 2016! The Astrolabe – Glastonbury has been my home for the past few days..I have never met such a bunch of welcoming, talented, incredible people! So sad Glastonbury has come to an end but I will remember every second! Glastonbury is magical and it was an honour to play my music there!

– LEAVE ME –

LISTEN HERE – https://soundcloud.com/anna-baines/leave-me

Leave Me was written when I lived in halls above a chicken shop in South East London….About a year later I went into the studio to record the track with my friends. I recorded the guitar in the listening room with my friends eating sweets and talking around me, it was a very relaxed to say the least. Then went on to do one vocal take and the two backing vocals were recorded on the same mic. It has a very organic and free feel and I have Penny Churchill to thank!
SO honestly thank you so much to everyone that played and helped out on this record <3 so much talent and so much love!

ALSO a massive thank you and shout out to Galina for the fabulous artwork! She is incredible and a beautiful human being. Check out more of her work below!

– NAKED NARRATIVE –

Naked Narrative was my New Context performance for the end of Second Year.

Watch here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-bVsjopkHI

This 9 minuet or so piece consists of 4 songs that transition into one another, telling a story. It is a very personal piece of work and has pushed me in more ways than one.

Thank you ever so much again to Holly Howe, Jess Ball and Gillie Rowland for helping me perform this live. So much love to them!

NAKED NARRATIVE

– Listen –

I’m listening to my skin and letting someone in…
So please be gentle as I lay down my pride upon the cotton ground.

A week feels like a second but we move like its been months…
Wasting time loving but I’ll waste it all I want.

A week feels like a second but we move like its been months…
Wasting time loving but I’ll waste it all I want.

– Trace Messages –

Take me there
I want to
Take me there
I want to

London lights fall through the window
I fall back down into the pillows and hardly sleep though

You trace messages upon my back
You trace messages upon my back

I – L – O – V – E – YOU

OOoooOOO

– Count –

If I could count my age on two hands
I might believe in all your plans
The plans you made for you and me,
when we were both still nineteen

But maybe that was bedroom talk…
and you don’t even mean those thoughts…
but on the day that I grew up,
the fairytale came unstuck!

(Leave me.)

I don’t want you to change your heart…
it’s you want a fresh start.
I don’t want you to change your heart.

I don’t want you to change your heart…
it’s you want a fresh start.
I don’t want you to change your heart.

– Numb to Feeling –

Are you numb to Feeling?
Can you feel at all?
You say you love me…but you’re gonna call it off when summer falls

Can’t you see I’m bleeding?!
Internally
As I lie in the bed try to steady my breathing…

Are you numb to feeling?

You say you love me…

#STUDIOZOO

On Monday 24th I recorded a #studiozoo theme song in order to try and win a competition called #cuppatea to go and hang with Newton Faulkner, I found out I won on the Wednesday and the next day, that same week on Thursday 27th June I went to meet Newton and it was an insane day! There was a feast of food and I got to visit the studios and do a little singing. I was so nervous but everyone was so welcoming and he is the nicest man! It was such a beautiful day that I will never forget!!!!
