ANIKA met producer Geoff Barrow (of Portishead), who was looking for a female vocalist to work with his band Beak>. ANIKA joined the band in the studio and recorded nine songs, including a cover of Yoko Ono′s "Yang Yang" in 12 days with no overdubs. The result, Anika, was released by Barrow′s Invada imprint in Europe and by Stones Throw Records in the U.S. and Japan in November 2010. ANIKA received positive reviews from contemporary critics.
