VIDEO: Candice Anitra — “Love Sick”

Meet Candice Anitra, a Philly-born singer-songwriter. Good chance you'll be hearing a lot from her.

Meet left-of-soul singer-songwriter Candice Anitra, who hails from Philly but now calls Brooklyn her home.  I’m looking forward to giving her album a close listen.  That said, based on a first pass, there’s something going on here.  By that, I mean that it sonically confounds any preconceived assumptions that I had about the kind of music I’d hear, i.e., I thought I’d be hearing some warmed-over, same ol’ whatever passes for soul music these days.  Thankfully, that wasn’t the case. For now, what I can say is that I find her arrangements refreshing and that’s a pleasant surprise.

NYC can check her out at her album release event at DROM on April 5.  In the meantime, enjoy the video for “Love Sick”:
