Montreal, QC-based feisty pop artist, Ann@lise will be releasing her EP, Welcome To The Sh!t Show on March 25, 2022.
She recently unveiled her new pop/ R&B-infused single, “Fake Friends”, which follows the former single, “My Kinda Problem“. The single is written by Ann@lise and producer, Trevor Klayman, and it aims to give a metaphorical finger to fake friends.
‘’I wrote ‘Fake Friends’ about things in your life that are toxic”, Ann@lise explains. “It could be a person, a bad habit, alcohol or substance abuse, or being addicted to your devices or social media. It’s a fake friend because you know it’s not good for you.”
Ann@lise is known for writing songs that are both sophisticated and lyrically witty. She is not afraid to tackle subjects that might cause some to reflect upon potentially uncomfortable truths about themselves.
“I feel like this song is relatable and touches on a raw topic. It’s an anthem that encourages listeners to scream about things they are stuck in or experiencing in their lives. I want to let people know they are not alone.”
Check out Fake Friends below, and find out more about Ann@lise via our mini-interview.
Hi Ann@lise! Welcome to Canadian Beats. Your new single “Fake Friends” was released recently. What can you tell us about the track?
I wrote ‘Fake Friends’ about things in your life that are toxic. It could be a person, a bad habit, alcohol or substance abuse, or being addicted to your devices or social media. It’s a fake friend because you know it’s not good for you.
“Fake Friends” is the second single from your forthcoming EP “Welcome To The Sh!t Show”, which is due out March 25. What can we expect from the other songs on the EP?
The songs on Welcome To The Sh!tshow really reflect the chaos in my life and everything that I’ve seen and experienced since I was a teenager and into my early 20s. Sonically it’s darker pop with strong messages I believe the listener will relate to.
What are your overall musical goals for 2022?
I’m hoping my next single, which is called “Sois-Bois” (out Feb 25) will resonate with Canadian Pop radio. I would love to see my music on the Canadian radio charts! Overall, my goals are to grow my fanbase, to play as many live shows as possible, and to continue writing new music. I would love to be invited onto a big tour so I can perform to large audiences.
If you could put together a dream tour to be on this year, what other Canadian artists would be on the bill and why?
I love this question! I would say my dream tour would include Jamie Fine, Lennon Stella, Kayla Diamond, and myself. GIRL POWER! I think the lineup would be a great fit musically and so much fun. Jamie is hilarious and always brings great vibes. I’ve only met Lennon Stella once but she is super sweet and a fun person to hang out with. And Kayla Diamond has become like a sister to me – we have written together and have become such close friends. It would be like having family on the road.
Would you like to share anything else with your fans?
