Live Review: PREMIERE: ANH and Vanessa Elisha 'Take It Back' to the 90s with new collab

10 October 2018 | 12:11 pm | Emma Jones

Gold Coast producer ANH returns today with a sublime new single, this time teaming up with rising star VANESSA ELISHA for a 90s-RnB number, 'Take It Back'. It's been a minute since we've heard from the producer, but he's sounding better than ever on this one as Vanessa Elisha channels AALIYAH for a sombre song with a whole lot of soul and groove.

"The song 'Take It Back' is about taking someone for granted and realising in their absence that they were a big part of your happiness. Taking back the negativity and wondering if they’re in the same headspace to take back theirs," ANH said of the new song. Infusing influences from the likes of KAYTRANADA with a nostalgic approach, ANH lays down the perfect foundation for Vanessa Elisha to really shine, her voice gliding across the shifting beats.

Admitting that maybe you didn't treat someone so well is hard, but 'Take It Back' lays it all out for everyone to see and hear. You can practically hear the begging in Elisha's vocals as she apologies, admitting that perhaps jealously and other external factors got in the way. Will they make up or is it over for good? We can't be too sure of that, but what we are sure of is ANH gets better and better with each release, and teaming up with Vanessa Elisha for this is a match made in musical heaven. Let's hope there's more where this came from!
