Anni: Stains

Your new favourite Finn Anni takes classic songwriting and contemporary beats to create a 5-track EP that demonstrates an exceptionally strong musical talent. The piano skills she’s famous for have been perfectly captured on the songs, and her lyrics carry a rare kind of honesty and empathy. She sounds refreshingly Nordic, and yet her music is undeniably universal.

Redemption Street is about authenticity, she says. “It’s an anthem to the future generation to be themselves and accept whatever imperfections and scars they might have in life. Once you choose to step into the path of authenticity, you walk through a mental pitch black where you are confronting everything about yourself you have been hiding and denying in order to fit in and be liked. You have to choose mercy and self-love. At the end of this dark journey, is the most awesome life you can imagine. For me, that journey was Redemption Street.”

Anni: Stains Lyrics:
Wasted days
in the haze
I was bored
I was playing games

Looking for
an easy cure
not to heal
but to numb the pain

That was then
you are now
’til the end
hold me down

Wash off these
stains, stains, stains, stains
wipe these fingerprints
of my past mistakes
soak me in your grace
…stains

This is me
this is my skin
so now you know
no need to pretend

Disarm me first
undress me then
shed a light
through my defence

’cause that was then
you are now
’til the end
hold me down

Wash off these
stains, stains, stains, stains
wipe these fingerprints
of my past mistakes
soak me in your grace
…stains

Been hiding my faults inside my coat
didn’t let no thing, no body rock my boat
but that way my world stayed still
and I want you to rock my world!

As I acted flawless
I hurt myself even more
made myself so damn likeable
so dateable
I hated myself
outdated versions of myself!

Never fully committed
fear of missing out
fear of choosing
fear of being the one who gets hurt
or the one who hurts

That was then
you are now
’til the end
hold me down

Wash off these
stains, stains, stains, stains
wipe these fingerprints
of my past mistakes
soak me in your grace
…stains
