"Amyl and the Sniffers or Hole are immediate reference points, especially in terms of the vocals, but Annie Taylor possess something raw and primal in their sound that sets them apart." - Analog Trash
England's music luminaries Gigwise describes Annie Taylor as "Mellow, cool guitar romp through desert rock, shoegaze, indie and pop influences. Lush." - and not without reason!
The four friends Gini Jungi, Tobias Arn, Michael Mutter and Daniel Bachmann leaped into Taxi Gauche Records arms when they collectively decided to jump on a train for the most exhilarating adventure of their lives.
From playing at barely equipped shacks to supporting Wolf Alice & Skunk Anansie on their 2022 tour, the band has been highly active since their debut release Sweet Mortality in 2020. It’s a record as seeped in pop as it is in psychedelia and grunge which ends up at a beautiful mid-point (Taxi Gauche Records). With that said, it’s not surprising that Annie Taylor were inundated with requests to perform at numerous festivals including The Great Escape, MTV Music Week, Reeperbahn, Zurich Openair, Waves Vienna and Montreux Jazz Festival before heading out on tour in the UK, Germany and Switzerland.
Whilst alerting the ears of The 405, Gigwise, Indie Shuffle and L.A.Weekly, the band have garnered laudable comparisons to early Hole, Wolf Alice and Warpaint. Hailing from Zurich, Annie Taylor are surfing around the corner with an extremely nonchalant mixture of grunge and freshly exuberant rock, spreading a buoyant, uplifting atmosphere everywhere, with their undeniably energetic live shows.
Annie Taylor have released in July 2023 the eagerly- anticipated second album 'Inner Smile', which was recorded in Bristol (UK) with uber-producer Ali Chant (Yard Act; Katy J. Pearson; Aldous Harding; Sorry).
