London-based New York R&B-pop singer, songwriter, and producer ANISE shares the title track of her forthcoming Black Eve EP. The record written and produced with her longtime collaborators Alex Dopierala and Terell ‘Tee’ Farrell, is a mid-tempo Afropop infused experimental R&B track that shows ANISE's off-kilter style. She strays from the norm and employs a mix of sultry melodies and hushed cadences which creates a griping ebb and flow as the song progresses. The title is a reference to the divine feminine strength, an idealogy that she uses to transform trauma into a self-building tool while challenging the hypocrisy of Western narratives that have oppressed minority communities throughout history. She further explains via email that she hopes the song resonates not only with people in her community but also with those who have ignored and taken part in the oppression of minorities across the globe.
ANISE grew up in New York, and moved to London in 2018 to hone her music career. After some years, settling into her newfound home and developing her unique sound, she is not ready to drop her debut EP Black Eve, a body of work that explores themes of independence, womanhood, intimacy, empowerment, and community.
