Feature: We Play 'What Song...' with Anais

Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Anais Campbell is a 17-year-old on the rise! She was contacted by Nashville producers Will and Michelle Gawley over social media, and since then, her life has changed. 'To Our Home', which features on her EP Push Through, is her latest single. She gives us a little insight into some of the tracks she loves.

What song reminds you of your youth?
'Pump It' by Black Eyed Peas
Anything Black Eyed Peas! Especially the song ‘Pump It.’ This was definitely the go-to song on my iPod shuffle back in the day.


What song would you love to sample?
‘Can't Help Falling In Love’ by Elvis Presley
This tune makes me sway with complete calm; it is very soothing. A timeless song that you could manipulate and make it as individual as you want to.


What song did you last listen to?
‘Broken Halos’ by Chris Stapleton
This guy is insanely talented. I am in love with all of his music at the moment. I will never get tired of his divergent voice and songwriting style.


What song do you wish you collaborated on? 
‘Sailing’ by Christopher Cross
Something about the instruments in this song takes me to another place. There isn’t a lot of music around like this anymore, Christopher has a very unique style and presence shown through his music. One of my favourite artists for sure. 


What song is your ultimate party track?
‘Come On Eileen’ by Dexys Midnight Runners
It will forever be ‘Come On Eileen’ by Dexys Midnight Runners. This song builds and builds every chorus. It is the best song to get lost in and just dance your heart out. All of my embarrassing moves come out in this one!


What song has been your favourite track of this year?
'Perfect Duet' by Ed Sheeran & Beyoncé
I’ve been loving ‘Perfect’ by Ed Sheeran, but more specifically, the version with Beyoncé. Their voices and styles are so different yet they mould perfectly. A raw and relatable song.
