Annemarie is an bubblegum-ish, sunshine indie pop group from Indonesia and their songs, as the subgenre would note, are pure bliss. The band is in the process of recording their second album, and in doing so they’re packing their pop with an array of outside influences, from Latin to jazz. In that regard, Annemarie can easily be related to their fellow country-folk, White Shoes & The Couple’s Company.
“Blue Sky On Holiday” is a sunny pop song with twangy guitars and carefree vocals. Featuring driving percussion and a hint of multi-faceted instrumentation including flute, triangle, and more, the song is perfect for the coming summer season. And the band’s demo for “Spring Bus” is just as upbeat and cheery. If you dig the music released through labels like Series II Records and Minty Fresh, you’ll certainly have room in your heart for Annemarie.
