“Never Coming Back” by Anika

Anika – the project of Berlin-based musician Annika Henderson – presents the video for her new single, “Never Coming Back,” from her first new album in over a decade, Change, which is out now on Sacred Bones and Invada. Throughout Change there’s a palpable sense of global anxiety seemingly baked into its DNA, as presented in “Never Coming Back.” It’s both a call to arms and a warning that she wrote after reading Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring.

Never Coming Back’ is a song about those things that are no longer there, that we didn’t see slip away; only upon their complete extinction, did we register the loss and by then, it was too late. Be it our freedoms, our liberties, our protections, our birds, our breaths, our loved ones. It’s a love song about loss,” says Anika.
