Anna Burch announces If You’re Dreaming for 4/3 release

by Woody on January 16, 2020

Anna Burch is following up on her 2018 effort Quit The Curse. If You’re Dreaming is set to be released via the fine folks at Polyvinyl on 4/3. Caught a great set by her at SXSW in 2018 and plan on doing the same this year. Here’s some info on the first track from Anna.

I wrote Not So Bad the day before I left to record, because I felt there was an important piece of the album missing—a hopeful, escapist pop song that dealt more positively with themes the other songs were circling around—and luckily it came together almost immediately. The chord progression felt light and jazzy, and when I started to write the words I remembered my mom bugging me about how melancholic my lyrics tend to be, “Surely your life hasn’t all been that bad!”

I wanted to express the importance of cultivating a rich interior life that falls outside of the economy of images and information we’re disseminating at all times. Not So Bad is an optimistic love song about retreating into memories to find what you need to feel in control of your own narrative when everything else around you feels precarious. – Anna Burch
