ANIMA! are an alternative electronic duo featuring Arielle Vakni and Vicente Espi who originate from California and Cape Town, South Africa. Their enchantingly iconic vocal and cerebral beat boutique has fast become an alternative electronic favourite alongside their founding inspirations Sylvan Esso, Metronomy to Little Dragon; who first inspired their formation. Enchanting millions of listeners since releasing their self-titled debut in 2016 and EP Art:Work in 2017, the duo have earned a place as top US alt-indie electronic duo. Their new album ‘Grow Your Garden’ is a bouquet of their diverse influences - a entrapping female vocal, a touch of disco, vintage electronic and progressive lyrical expression ties together their album’s message to cultivate things that shape your self growth. In their words, they write:
🌱 GROW YOUR GARDEN is a reminder that we’re all born with something unique and equally important within us. We are all given seeds to grow into into abundant plants that help heal and nurture the earth. Your garden are the ideas, actions and dreams that keep you going every day, that give you a reason to trust your gut and make something beautiful out of your time on this planet. Nobody can take it away from you and nobody can tell you it doesn’t matter because even a small garden can feed you for a lifetime. So trust your intuition, put in the hard work, and celebrate what makes you different. There’s nothing like walking through a beautiful garden that makes you want to plant your own...
