Sandra Anna aka 1five1 is a Toronto-based multi-instrumentalist and bedroom producer. Sandra is drawn to r&b-leaning trip-hop acts like Portishead and Massive Attack, and IDM pioneers like Aphex Twins, Bjork and Radiohead’s Kid A. She has a goal of becoming a film composer, so this combined with her musical pallet inspire the texture and heavy emotion heard in Sandra’s production.

Sandra describes her creative process as “world-building”, often following a singular chord or beat section to inspire many atmospheric layers. Live guitar, bass, and piano can be heard all throughout her debut record.

1five1’s self-titled EP is an accumulation of instrumental experimentations in combining despondency with dance floor-ready rhythms, slowly ascending over 5 tracks from heavy melancholia into blissful optimism.
