“There was so much going on in world politics making me miserable, and in the Solomon Islands I was seeing first-hand what it looks like as the world starts to go underwater,” Anna explains.
It was a book that turned Anna’s mind around: Hope in the Dark by US activist Rebecca Solnit.
“I wanted to write a song that conveyed the feeling this book gave me,” says Anna. “It talks about how hope can be an axe we can use to break down doors. Hopeful actions can seem meaningless against all the darkness and uncertainty, but the book shows how, historically, those small acts have added up to huge changes.”
‘Alight’ is the lead single from Anna Smyrk’s sophomore EP, Swim, out on Nov 1st.
