We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Aniqatia‘s new song “The Heiress” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album Luminous, out digitally on March 11th through Nefarious Industries.
The band comments on the song: “‘The Heiress’ is a song about the frustration and tension that goes along with having people in your life that you can’t please, regardless of how hard you try. Musically, it’s structured around that tension – the verses represent building it up, the choruses serve as a release for it, and the drifting middle sections are trying to escape it.”
Formed in 2013, Aniqatia (an-uh-kay-dee-uh) recorded their debut EP Erratics, with engineer Vince Ratti (Circa Survive, Balance And Composure, The Wonder Years) releasing it in June 2014 and quickly gained recognition from both critics and fans alike, drawing comparisons to Hum, Explosions In The Sky, Sunny Day Real Estate, and Failure, among others. Luminous builds upon the foundation formed by its predecessor, featuring a more progressive and cohesive sound that is both refreshing and nostalgic at the same time. Recorded and mixed in the Summer of 2015, once again by Ratti, Luminous showcases a hardened and exploratory set of songs propelled by soaring melodic guitar lines and ironclad, thoughtful rhythms. Fans of the aforementioned acts, as well as Nefarious labelmates Maid Myriad, and Opul should keep the EP on their radar.
