AA Loves: Anni Rossi

Whimsical Indie pop puts a smile on my face like no other, which is why I’m having a bit of a love affair with Anni Rossi.

This Minnesota native is a classically trained violaist and uses that talent to great effect seamlessly blending pop, electronic beats, and even a touch of experimental rock. Of particular note is her interesting use of the viola as she fingerpick guitar-like melodies.

To borrow some words, “Her newest album, Heavy Meadow, sounds a little bit like you're scanning through the radio, although it's slightly warped and playfully dark, much like those early karaoke tapes of her singing over the top of the pops countdown.”

Her second album is out on 3 Syllable Records now, so be sure to check it out.

Listen to a few favorites below.

Be sure to check out “Hatchet,” which playfully experiments with different time signatures.
