Political journalist and Geoff Barrow-collaborator reworks disco great.
Anika takes on the Chromatics with her unforgettably impassive voice for this ultra-poised cover of In the City. She’s an enigmatic character – political journalist by day, European chanteuse with faultlessly deadpan delivery by night. Her 2010 debut album, Anika, was the perfect, cover-heavy, showcase for her glassy, cold voice.
The Chromatics are an Italo-disco band from Portland, Oregan housed on the Italians Do It Better label. In The City was a breakthrough track for them back in 2007.
