Anna Calvi - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Anna Calvi
Anna Calvi smiles sweetly. She does that a lot. She doesn’t seem like a person who makes monsters. Or, indeed, a kind of music that rages like wild emotions adrift in stormy seas, performed, on stage, with a fierce, laconic poise. There is definitely some split personality going on here. ‘When I play live I’m a different person,’ Anna smiles, sweetly. ‘I feel powerful and fearless. All the things I wish I felt in everyday life.’

Anna Calvi’s self-titled debut album, is about lust and love, devils, and a new take on David Lynchian dramatic surrealism… uh, actually, stop right there. Another thing about this disarmingly sweet blonde girl is that she’s better at defining what she does than anyone else. ‘It’s a record about the internal forces in life which are out of your control and can take you over, and how you survive them. It explores intimacy, passion and loneliness. There is an element of darkness to the record but there is also a sense of hope… This album is the culmination of my whole life up until now.’
