Anna Wise returns with the first single from the second of her two-act EP The Feminine. The production on ‘Coconuts’ is minimal and breathy, textures come and go both organic and synthetic. At the centre of it all is Anna at her most tender, softly cooing lyrics of love and the reciprocal validation it brings. The song’s core rhythm is rooted in trap, but the funk guitars and gently bleated saxophones make it a complex composition to pin down. Anna is at the absolute cusp of innovation in 2017 and with ‘Coconuts’ it’s looking like she can purvey mellow vibes just as well as the apoplectic hell-hath-no-fury lyricism of her previous EP.
The Feminine: Act II will be released on February 17
