Soundcheck With Anna of the North

Anna Lotterud has yet to get nervous — she’s still in the sweet spot before a show when the reality of stepping onstage is distant enough — but if she keeps talking about it, the nerves are bound to surface early.
“I get really nervous right before the show — but until that I’m really calm,” she says from her dressing room at Terminal 5. “But then had a hour before the show I’m like ‘deep breaths.’ But talking about it I’m like, ‘it’s coming!’”
Lotterud — who performs under the name Anna of the North — has had quite a rapid rise in the U.S., much in thanks to her song “Lovers” being included in this summer’s Netflix hit “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.” The Norwegian-born singer-songwriter, who grew up near Lillehammer but calls Oslo home these days, has been opening for indie-pop band LANY on their U.S. tour, as she continues to introduce herself to American listeners.
“I’ve never actually done promo or anything in the U.S. before so it’ll be interesting to see,” she says. “Because of the Internet I’ve always had American listeners but never been here [playing music].”
