Calvi has been a regular fixture on the festival circuit this summer supporting her 2018 album Hunter – one Live4ever’s essentials of last year. She plays Deer Shed this weekend with more European outings booked through to the end of August.

“There’s a tenderness and resignation to the ballad Away that portrays Calvi as a victim as well aggressor, but the final word goes to opener As A Man, where the question is not about her but about what the subject wants, a reminder that sexuality is never owned set to a massive set of pop-props that could launch the provocative what ifs into the mainstream,” our Hunter review reads.

“Strip back rock and roll and you’ll find lust and sex – its name comes from it, after all. The Hunter is about all the other stuff we complicate it with and Anna Calvi has used it to come out from everything, including her own body. That beneath this revelation it still makes a noise worth hearing is a remarkable feat.”
