Anu Sava started out as a solo project from Sarah Vardy, front woman of Australian rock band Girl With Cake. Anu Sava has grown into a 2 piece with Sarah Vardy on vocals/guitar and award-winning percussionist Jane Boxall on drums.
Anu Sava's music consists of live instruments combined with synthesized ones, beats and various other sound samples. Sarah is a multi-instrumentalist with a fervor for guitar. She started out as a chubby violinist at 9 years old and also has a rich history of singing 90s classics with her siblings in the car. Sarah draws inspiration for her songwriting from life events, social injustices, prejudice and entertaining scenarios.
The first album BURIED was released in August 2013, which was a solo exploration into EDM crossed with folk music. The second experiment the 'Lickety Split' EP, delved into the queer-country genre and was unleashed in 2014.
The next album to be released from Anu Sava features Sarah and Jane in a 2-piece, stripped-back, rock duo using guitar loops, FX, vocals and drums. The new project from Anu Sava reveals a darker side, with a distinct riot grrrl flavour. The album will drop in early 2016. A couple of tastes of this new project will be released prior to the formal release. The first single "Set Yourself Free" will be unveiled in late August with a surprise release popping up in September.
