Annika Catharina's New Single "Bandit" Captures Hearts


Canadian country artist Annika Catharina is celebrating the recent music video release for her current single “Bandit”.

Written by Amanda Couture and the song’s producers The Renaissance (Dan Botch and Garrett Ward), “Bandit” is the second single to drop this year from the Abbotsford, British Columbia-based artist. Beyond its romantic and picturesque storytelling, the country heart of “Bandit” is on display in a production that emphasizes Annika’s heartfelt vocals and layered harmonies alongside a rousing steel guitar. “Bandit” has earned over 75K Spotify streams and been featured on Spotify’s “Fresh Finds Country” editorial playlist along with Apple Music’s “Canada Country” editorial playlist.

The video, which was directed by Max Chadwick, captures the timeless nature of the song through its images of the artist.

Annika says, “To me, ‘Bandit’ is about wanting and desire. It speaks to the things we do for love, but in a cheeky and fun style. When I heard the demo for the first time, I fell in love. To bring it to life with The Renaissance, we worked hard to create an experience that could transport listeners into the moments that the ‘bandit’ is describing throughout the song.”

“Bandit” follows the rising artist’s smash single, “What if I”, which reached 150K streams on Spotify – landing on the editorial playlists “New Music Friday Country”, “Country Frontier”, “North Country”, “Next From Nashville”, “RADAR Canada”, and “EQUAL Canada” – and was placed on Apple Music “Canada’s Country” editorial playlist. “What if I” also reached #5 on SiriusXM Top of the Country Radio in Canada.

Annika’s exciting ascent in country music is a poignant testament to her own perseverance after a devastating accident and facial reconstruction surgery initially sidelined her musical pursuits as a young adult.

Since making the decision to continue forward, Annika is now basking in the light of her glowing country soul and poised to win more hearts with her new single.

She says, “Love is universal. At some point, we feel it and crave it. “Bandit” is for everyone who is determined to go above and beyond to steal someone’s heart in creative and romantic ways.”

“Bandit” is available on all digital streaming platforms. The music video is available on YouTube.
