The Cry Baby
The Cry Baby Biog:
"Hailing from North London and one of Britain's bright musical talents for the future is Anna Waldmann.
Anna writes honest songs with dark, clever lyrical and melodic hooks. Her unique music is largely shaped from a background of having to undertake adult responsibilities since she was a child. This has resulted in an intriguing combination of the maturity of somebody who grew up too early and the childishness of somebody who wants their childhood back.
Her vulnerable vocal reflects elements of naivety, inviting you in, then her lyrics are the complete antithesis of this, creating unrest and revealing that she has seen things that she shouldn't have....
Anna accompanies herself on keys with her child-like, classically inspired riffs. Lukasz Pajak creates the dark atmospherics on the Electric Guitar using effects pedals and Sam Campbell adds the drums. They are then surrounded by more atmospherics and heavy bass lines to complete their live performance sound and create music that is textured with haunting melodies.
Anna was classically trained on piano and violin and has musical influences that include Bjork, Radiohead and 90's trip hop. She later met producer and sound engineer Dave Pemberton, who has worked with The Prodigy and Groove Armada amongst others and they discovered that they share a love of Trip Hop and are making an album with this in mind. DJ Yoof has also joined them on this venture, adding bass lines and tripped out beats to the mix.
Expect to hear more from The Cry Baby over the next few months and be sure to catch them live as they embark on a planned tour and hit the festivals next year.
