When European singer Anika surfaced with her 2010 debut of mostly covers, much of her press was super hung up on two things: she’s an ex-political journalist and she’s backed by Portishead producer Geoff Barrow and members of his band, Bleak. Both important items to note, but it’s her purposeful use of her droning, Nico-esque vocals that manages to make every song, cover and original, feel like a call to political action and/or a lesson in seduction. Take her popularized Ray Davies cover, “I Go to Sleep,” on which Anika toggles between paralysis and a hypnotic fever dream. Sara Marie Barron is also on the bill.

Doors open at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 10 at Deluxx Fluxx; 1274 Library St., Detroit; Tickets are $10.
