Anika, the Berlin-based post-punk artist and co-founder/vocalist of Exploded View, has released her first solo single in eight years. “Finger Pies” arrives via Sacred Bones/Invada, and Anika is expected to release more music later on this year. Hear it below.
Anika says of her new single in a press release: “A song that never had a name, like an artist that never had a face. Caught between roles, a jack of all trades, she slips between your fingers like a moment that never was, or was it? So many faces tailored to a myriad of occasions. Walls built between ourselves and the outside world. For protection. Passes grant access to another level. So where are you at? Those with all the keys, please remember, access comes with responsibility. Yet responsibility has been lost, like tissue paper in the rain, a battle without rules, to save face, exploit weakness, to save getting slayed, by the faceless generation. Welcome to the world of ‘Finger Pies.’”
Exploded View’s last album was 2018’s Obey.
Exploded View’s “Sleepers” is featured on our list of the Top 100 Songs of 2018.
