Lester The Fierce is Anita Lester. She’s created a new breed of styles best described as GHOST POP. Her songs touch on love, sex, death and the weather sung through her unmistakably unique and haunting voice.
On the back of her stunning first release ’The Summer Deluge, LTF made waves in the US, attracting interest from both major and indie labels. In mid 2012 LTF caught the eye of the infamous Kevin Agunus (Edward Sharp and The Magnetic Zeros, Gotye, Cold War Kids) who brought her to Sound City Studios with intention to record LTFs debut album, set to be made mid this year.
Lead single, Howl is influenced by female driven bands of the 90s, such as Garbage & Hole and the song’s poetic lyrics speak of a frustrated love. It was highly praised and well received by TV, radio and blog culture. From the success of Howl, LTF embarked on three national tours with Ngaiire, Stonefield and Ed Kowalczyk (Lead singer of LIVE).
Lester’s second single JANUARY, is a different tone and mood. It is reminiscent of Beck and 90’s ballad pop, yet is definitively linked to Howl by Lester’s unique vocals and poetic style.
