A new album by ANIMA!

🌱 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...


In a desolate truck stop bar, filled with animals a truck driver learns to love his fears and desires.

ANIMA! are a alternative electronic duo formed of the best parts of Arielle Vakni and Vicente Espi who originate from California and South Africa. Their enchantingly iconic vocal and unique cerebral beat boutique has fast become a favorite alternative indie electronic alongside their inspirations like Sylvan Esso and Little Dragon who first inspired their formation.

Named after ‘anima’, meaning the breath of life in each of us, ANIMA!’s songs like ‘Moving Mountains’ and ‘Blood’ hold an uplifting universality with an unconventional twist. Their differences in background and musical upbringing craft an evocative colorful sound world that “you will have never heard before.” - Hilly Dilly.

Unexpected to them, their first release ‘Breathe’ was a viral hit and the start to millions of streams that they’ve received for their releases ANIMA! (2016), Be Here Now (2015), Art:Work (2017) and Grow Your Garden (2019). An entirely self-produced and self-released under their own imprint, ANIMA! feature on Spotify’s Global Viral 50, New Music Friday, Mint, New Indie Mix, Fresh Finds playlists, to Apple Best of Alternative, iTunes top 10 Alternative and tastemaker platforms Indie Shuffle, Red Bull, Tsugi to headlining DoLab’s Lighting In A Bottle festival.
