Ebony I'm from the Caribbean, so during "No Mind, Never Matter" the beat was my initial lure, the way it rhythmically sways as it pulses. For the vocals, love the way it overlays in a harmonic round during the chorus. There's a point I'm especially fond of, and that's the build up and almost chaotic array of synths until the beat drops and instead of a louder or faster sound, it quiets and slows. It's very relaxing. Favorite track: No Mind, Never Matter.

about

BE HERE NOW is a debut EP inspired by the present, produced by the alternative electronic duo ANIMA!. A kin to the definition, ANIMA! represents the inner-self of Vicente Espi and Arielle Vakni, a producer and singer-songwriter from Cape Town, South Africa and California, US.

Formed in the US, ANIMA!'s inspiration shadows Tune Yards, Sylvan Esso and Damon Albarn. Blending their world of difference as a singer-songwriter and a violinist-bred-producer, their debut EP Be Here Now leaves a genre defying message that is impossible to shake.

Track Name: Breathe
Breathe easy tonight
Stay quiet
Let the lines on your face feel light
Till the mornings ripe
It'll be alright

Speak your mind
Unwind all of your designs
I know you try
Put it on the line
Set it all aside

Long as you're alive

If there's hate there is love
If there's a right then there will be a wrong
Breathe out
Breathe in
Whatever you take, whatever you give
Constantly circles around again
Breathe out
Breathe in

This is it
We give what we've got to give
And we begin
To see it from within
Let the rhythm in
And give it back again

Here and now
Is the sound
All the people shout
Lay it down on the common ground
Let your light be found
Long as you're around

If there's hate there is love
If there's a right then there will be a wrong
Breathe out
Breathe in
Whatever you take, whatever you give
Constantly circles around again
Breathe out
Breathe in
Track Name: It's All Around
You are the air
You are the sound
You're the sum of the parts of the words falling from your mouth

You are the motion
You are the doubt
You're the fear that someday it'll all come crashing down

It's all around
It's something that you can't see
It's all around
You're where you're supposed to be

I am the silence
The lions roar
I'm the force of the moon making moves on the ocean floor

We are existence
We are the rules
We are each passing moment spent wondering what were meant to do

It's all around
It's something that you can't see
It's all around
You're where you're supposed to be
Track Name: No Mind, Never Matter
I could go on forever
Across the ocean of illusions
Get my hands attached to things
Play my part in the global scheme
But it's bigger than me
I'm a million little pieces falling into place and I do not own anything
Anything

No mind, never matter
No mind, never matter
No mind, never matter no
