Anuka is a singer-songwriter from The Netherlands. Not too long ago, she released a music video for her “Light Blue” single.
Anuka – “Light Blue”
“If you are dealing with depression or feel lonely often, please remember that there are people out there that want to be there for you. By opening up and sharing your pain you might find someone that can help you see the light at the end of the tunnel. Even if you are stuck feeling blue.” – Anuka
‘Light Blue’ tells the story of how a colorful mind can turn dark when it has no canvas to paint its love onto. The only light left to see is the one slightly lighter than seen when feeling blue: ‘Light Blue’.
The gloomy tune came into existence during a difficult time in Anuka’s life when she didn’t know how to be more loving towards herself. Also, when it was easy for her to blame herself for things she was unhappy about. Writing “Light Blue” helped her to put things into perspective and guided her back towards a more optimistic outlook on life.
Anuka – “Light Blue”
“Depression is the central theme of this song. With the lyrics, I’ve tried to express how powerless I’ve felt when I tried to be there for the people around me that were dealing with depression at that time. It was hard for me to understand how someone’s brain would cause someone to feel that unhappy. The only way to understand what the people in my life were going through, was to try and see it from their point of view. That’s how ‘Light Blue’ came to life.” – Anuka
Anuka’s music has amassed over 10M streams online across various platforms. Also, she has built herself a sustainable career from Soundcloud collaborations and online streaming revenue. Not too long ago, entrepreneurial YouTube guru Gary Vaynerchuk included her “Feel” single in one of his videos. Also, streaming service Hulu featured her “Open My Eyes” single with UK producer Duskus.

“The process taught me that true love comes with sometimes sacrificing your own idea of love. It’s a gift to love and to be loved in a way that doesn’t always require fully understanding each other.” – Anuka
‘Light Blue’ contains a relatable storyline, velvet soul vocals, and easy-going instrumentation flavored with alternative R&B and neo-soul elements.
