A name associated with the width, beauty and clarity of a magnificent, majestic landscape, Queen Alaska is an artist that articulates creativity in more than just her music. Alaska’s bright colours and reflections of mountains in a deep lake convey the impression of inner peace and unwavering strength at the same time. The northern lights are a miracle that makes you feel closer to the universe than to earth. Queen Alaska sits enthroned above the everyday world and personifies these sensual associations.
Being a composer, producer, vocalist and audiovisual artist, Anneli Bentler combines analogue synthesizers, drum machines, vocal cuttings and her fine sense for harmonic structures, to bring into being an eclectic landscape of sounds. Queen Alaska’s electronic, spherical pop sound has roots in classical music and score music, which she combines with modern productions, sound design and songwriting. Influenced by a range of different artists, from Steve Reich to Niki and the Dove, these artists help bring to life Anneli’s accessible yet complex songs. Delicately tarnished as a fragile sound, yet powerful, while equally dreamy yet danceable. With 808 tom fills, these original sounds from the techno culture are suddenly felt like pizzicato strings in her works. ‘Run To You’ is the finest subject of this, a track sprinkled with her signature airy synth arpeggios and an effervescent vocal.
