SAD SECRET SONGS
With a both velvet smooth and cracked voice Swedish artist Anna Arco invites the listener to an uncensored personal space, from pitch-black darkness to gentle light. After critically acclaimed single releases such as The Ocean and a collaboration with the award winning string collective Migdal Strings, multi-artist Arco released her debut album Songs within the Spectrum in May 2019. It was quickly highlighted by Swedish music critic PSL, Per Sinding Larsen, and featured in magazines such as Women in Pop, Upsala Nya Tidning, HYMN and Uppsalatidningen. The Stockholm-based female musician, composer, producer and label owner is releasing her second album Sad Secret Songs 27/8 2021 on Spiltan Records with several single releases during 2020 and 2021.
"Arco has crafted ... a remarkable collection of heartfelt, genre-warping pop, reflecting both the light and the darkness of her experiences. This is music for deep immersion that is worth being savoured. Pop may be the music of Arco’s heart, but Songs Within the Spectrum is shot through with musical elements spanning electro, jazz, stadium pop, dramatic ballads and dreamy orchestral textures."
"Her most recent music has that solitary air about it - her gorgeous vocals standing tall on minimal layers of instrumentation. "Dagger to the Heart" (think Submotion Orchestra), retains this simplicity; her folky vocals, almost Bhangra-like in style, are always the focus of your attention."
"ANNA ARCO's sad and dark debut single The Ocean is a beautiful pop song that really pulls you in ..."
