aniqadear

Each verse in Aniqa Dear’s “Wake Up” is filled with the lively blossom of something dwelling in a rainforest. When vocalist Aniqa Qadir sings, she brings up notes akin to Joanna Newsom. Each snarl and coo show that the track is alive. It can breathe. It can trap one in its waves.

The Toronto act’s debut EP Neither Here Nor There was released on July 28.
