Taken from “Could Divine”, out November 20th on Demo Records & Crossness Records.
anrimeal is the recording project of Ana Rita de Melo Alves. Originally from Porto, Ana moved to her current home of London in 2016, where she founded the ambitious DIY label Demo Records. While using this imprint to amplify other leftfield bedroom talents around the world. Ana developed the anrimeal project in semi-secret, keeping her finished debut album on the proverbial shelf.
“Cloud Divine” is a ‘computer folk’ record exploring the use of texture, limitation and repetition, that takes its cue from post-minimalism, particularly Eva Hesse and other women artists who pioneered the movement. Informed by Ana’s full control of the record-making process and the bedroom environment where it was created, the album is a deeply personal window into a protean creative mind – at times devastating, playful, mystical and earthbound, often in the space of a single track.
