Los Angeles-based musician Anna Luena is here to share her latest single release, "Don't Worry," with all pop-inspired listeners.
Already performing at venues such as The Whiskey A Go-Go, Saint Rocke Cafe, The Mint, and Planet Hollywood, Anna Luena has gained a passionate following that appreciates the qualities of her eccentrically-styled music. It is no secret that Anna Luena is playful in her approach, and "Don't Worry" portrays this characteristic incredibly well.
"Don't Worry" gives Anna Luena the time to shine, and does she ever shine bright. The track begins with a flavourful R&B rhythm that soon is filled with the original vocal sound of Anna Luena. She has a very particular voice that allows her to be as distinguishable as she is, and the moment your ears are flooded with an Anna Luena song, the connection is made, as her style is playful and manipulated in various ways, allowing a motley of harmonies to assimilate themselves.
One element to Anna Luena that is hard to miss within "Don't Worry" is her layered strategy. There isn't one tone held throughout the track, there are handfuls. This approach allowed for "Don't Worry" to take on an eclectic atmosphere, and also brought in a variety of genre techniques in the process that really elevated the song in many purposeful ways.
The song is accompanied by a music video that features psychedelic-like visuals, which work to amplify the already-present eccentrics of "Don't Worry." Viewers get to watch Anna Luena in many settings, one of which may bring on an unexpected surprise. All in all, "Don't Worry" was a blithely executed single of Anna Luena's, leaving listeners and viewers with curiosity as to what this pop-inspired R&B artist will come out with next.
"Don't Worry" and its music video is available on streaming platforms today.
Thank you for joining us at BuzzMusic Anna Luena. The release of "Don't Worry" and its accompanying music video was the latest musical offering from you. How do you believe "Don't Worry" compared to other song releases of yours?
"Don't Worry" has definitely been my biggest musical release so far, we've had over 25k organic streams since its debut, and as an indie artist that just blows me away. For me, every song that I create is somewhat of an evolution as an artist and "Don't Worry". has been quite the journey. I wrote it at the beginning of the lockdown and myself and my producer worked tirelessly on countless mixes and countless versions until we finally had the best one. This was one of those projects that really required determination to finish and it kept us hopeful and motivated through the tension and disruption of Covid.
What was the primary intention with your track "Don't Worry?" Were there any aspects of the song that you were hoping wouldn't go missed by your listeners?
Our primary intention of creating "Don't Worry" was to inject a positive light at the end of a very dark tunnel. It was to remind people of their power and to "carry on" just like it says in the song. The lockdown required people to switch focus, work on themselves and remember what is important. "Don't Worry" is an anthem that will continue to inspire hope and give people strength when they need it the most.
"Don't Worry" has gained over 15k organic listens since May of this year! How does this milestone make you feel?
I am deeply humbled by the streaming milestone and have been totally blown away by how "Don't Worry" has been received. I am an "in-person" type person so to have people from around the world play your music who have never even spoken to you, let alone heard of you, is a really cool feeling. My wish is that everyone who needs to hear "Don't Worry" gets to hear it.
You're clearly an artist that is involved in many extracurriculars within the music industry. Do you believe that your involvement allows your own music to be elevated in a disparate way?
I have to laugh at the extracurriculars because it's 100 percent true. I am a multifaceted, DIY artist through and through. I have never let money be my motivation when it comes to my art so I've had to make everything I have work for me to the best of my ability. We produce, record, and mix in-house. I have total control over my image, assets, and career. It's freeing but when you don't have a team you have a lot of pressure on yourself to make it work. I do consider that one of my greatest "elevations." I am incredibly thankful for my producer Iammalachi and the support and love I receive from my family, spirit guides, peers, and community of friends!
