Austrian native Anja was introduced to Björk’s album Debut by her older brothers, and everything changed. Her first song, written at 14, *Cynthia*, addressed the “longing to escape” her age and village. When quizzed on her latest album, Anja said: “I wanted to create a world where I felt sheltered, I was searching for something soothing.” Anja’s search for shelter has created something of a restorative oasis, a more balanced adult view than the rawer, angrier aspects of her earlier work.
