Ánders ~ You Didn’t Need My Love!

Aussie artist Anders!

When I listen to “You Didn’t Need My Love” by the multifaceted Aussie artist Ánders, I jump back into a world of memories of those mistimed chance meetings of yesterday.  Where out of the blue, without a warning in the world, a special someone walks into my path and makes me question everything I thought was ‘my normal’ only a minute before.  It’s these random whirlwind-like moments of intense emotions, heart wrenching internal reflections and painful realizations that are beautifully captured by Ánders in this track.  And as I let the song paint familiar and agonizing pictures in my mind, I strangely enjoy reliving them all over again.

“You Didn’t Need My Love” is a smooth grooving song with a lot of interesting elements; the gentle melodic guitar strums, the r&b style electronic beats and the sporadically repetitive voice samples. On the surface, Ánders delivers lyrics in a simple and very straight forward way, but these words carry a heavier weight in meaning through a great vocal style that is both translucently raw and incredibly easy to relate to.  With every ebb and flow in tempo, I can feel the longing, the uncertainty and the sadness behind each word sung.  As if I am experiencing this memory for the very first time with each and every listen!

The 23-year old Ánders is currently working on his debut EP and if this track is any early indication, the music will be worthy of a lot more attention stateside.  It’s definitely got mine. Download this track for free on the Soundcloud link provided below.

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
