AnSoFi Shares Debut Single ‘Love & Fear’

AnSoFi, the moniker of Norwegian-born, Copenhagen-based composer, songwriter and producer Anne Sofie Strandheim Eike, makes her official music introduction with the release of her hauntingly beautiful debut single Love & Fear
I am loving the powerful, expressive vocals which instantly infuse the song with an ethereal and emotive touch that completely won me over to this song. Love & Fear is an emotional piano ballad that asks us to examine the balance between love and fear in our post-pandemic world. This message is wrapped around a highly hipnotising production that pairs dark piano chords over percussive, trip hop interludes beautifully backing her emotional vocals. There's somewhat of a neo-classical soundscape with touches of melancholia that I find captivating and the whole atmosphere of the song is quite warm and enchanting, feeling like someone is giving us a warm embrace, letting us know that things are going to be ok. This is one of those songs I'd play while home alone with my thoughts and I think you will love it as much as I do. Check it out below!



Speaking about the song, AnSoFi said, 
I felt this reflected in my own life. I had been working on my solo project for almost 4 years without releasing any music and I felt really stuck. Lockdown became a sort of reckoning that forced me to quite literally face the music, and start to discover what was holding me back. This inspired a new way of working. I would make space for my fear in the creative process by giving it a name, writing it down on a piece of paper and pulling up an extra chair for it next to the piano while recording. I also decided to record piano and vocal simultaneously to eliminate the self-awareness or over thinking that could otherwise get in the way. Finally I also decided to learn to mix my own songs. This became a lesson in trusting my intuition and gut feeling. Slowly but surely this song and other songs I had been struggling with for so long, began to assume form.
