released July 7, 2017
Soft Copy is the musical documentation of a very significant learning curve in my life. It's hard to thank anyone for an artistic statement so personal, shout out to Taari Meiners, who put up with listening to every single draft I ever sent him despite him not being particularly interested in music to begin with. Shout out to everyone who helped me record this album and bring my ideas to life because I lived in a shitty little concrete apartment in Beijing with nothing but a guitar and a laptop while making it. Now to throw an apology at my school's music department for taking advantage of all the equipment there and stealing stuff to use in my music.
This album was an enjoyable piece of work to make, I hope it's enjoyable to listen to as well.
Everything written and produced by me (I’m Anika) except for track 6 and track 9. I also sung on just about everything, cover art by me as well.
Like I said, a shit load of people helped so a huge thanks to them.
