EMERGING POP/ROCKER ANNIE BANY HAS A BLAST IN MIAMI
SHOOTING HER ‘PARADISE’ VIDEO WITH AWARD-WINNING
SLOVAKIAN DIRECTOR ROLAND WRANIK
In a recent interview Annie Bany did with journalist Harriet Kaplan of Black on the Canvas, the fast emerging pop/rock songstress and songwriter described her infectious music as “fun and youthful…upbeat, happy and sunshiny.”
The singer basked in plenty of sunshine and smiles in Miami, where she recently shot a video for her infectious, high-energy new single “Paradise” with award-winning Slovakian music video director Roland Wranik.
The clip can be viewed here:
“Shooting with Annie in Miami was amazing. There were five people from my crew, everybody came from Slovakia. The video is focused on emotion of young girls how they enjoy their life,” said Wranik.
Annie recently posted on her Facebook page that Wrank’s dark, mystical video for the electronic hip-hop track “KONTRAFAKT” (produced by Maiky Beatz) won Best Video for his home country of Slovakia.
On “Paradise,” which features a cool rap by CrooKid, she dreams: “We’re on our way to Paradise/We’re leavin’ this and landin’ in a dream/Like a lucky pair of dice…you’re winning when you’re crashing into me…so here we go…”
“Paradise’ paints the picture of my ‘happy place’ and perfect getaway,” Annie says. “This song was inspired by a time when I thought nothing was going my way. I was stressed out from school, the weather sucked, it was cold, and all I wanted to do was escape to my own private island. Think about the time when you throw your hands up and say ‘I need a vacation!’ That’s Paradise.”
The recently released track is available via iTunes.
Earlier this year, Annie released her debut single “Hot Lipz,” another track captured her optimism, sense of romance and the fact that she thinks it’s cool for girls to be forward and go after what they want.
Penned by Annie with her co-producers Cody Falkosky and Ben Vredevelt, the infectious track hit digital outlets January 15. She is currently working on an album, set for tentative release in late spring or early summer.
