“Tiles” is the 3rd studio release by Italian experimental cult band Larsen presenting itself as a 5-piece unit featuring legendary chanteuse, dub diva of Crass and On-U Sound fame, Annie Bandez aka Little Annie as vocalist and lyricist.
Annie joined Larsen in 2008 after seeing the band performing at an Austrian festival.
She appeared on the following albums “La Fever Lit” and “Cool Cruel Mouth” (2008/ 2011) and the relative European tours.
“Tiles” follows up Larsen’s latest album, the fully instrumental “Of Grog Vim” (2016), and features four pieces on the edge between “song” and “orchestrated spoken words” marked by Annie’s personal urban storytelling and vocals.
