Anna Wiebe ‘New Behaviour’

There is something painfully sweet about Anna Wiebe's voice against the slow strumming of the guitar; almost as a recovering ache on her new track "New Behaviour."

Canadian artist, Anna Wiebe, introduces us to her assertiveness and growth on her latest single “New Behaviour.” The Guelph native displays a myriad of controlled emotions throughout the acoustic track and leads a listener down a dreamy and warm road.

Despite the warmth though, there is something painfully sweet about Wiebe’s voice against the slow strumming of the guitar. Almost as a recovering ache, “New Behaviour” acts a healing check-in, clarifying Wiebe’s growth, acceptance, and redefinition of self.  The gentle track expresses Wiebe’s stance and hinders a small overall ultimatum- showcasing a “want” versus a “need”- something developed through growing pains: “I got a new behaviour / and you can watch if you want all day / be a friend and pretend, if you want you can stay.”

With the rough edges guided by a gentle and simple harmony, Wiebe’s expression of assertiveness and comfort is welcoming in every way. The title track is off of Wiebe’s forthcoming new album, New Behaviour, out November 3rd.
