Ghost Bikini's Anela Terzic

Anela Terzic is the modern femme fatale. She’s been through hell and came back to seduce Atlanta with her head-turning personal and musical style as the singer of gritty garage-rock band Ghost Bikini.

On stage, the vintage-loving bombshell hides a harrowing childhood. Born in war-torn Bosnia in 1990, she was forced to flee the county with her mother and brother after watching their house and all of their personal belongings go up in flame. After years of relocation and fake identities, the family was reunited with Terzic's father, a prisoner of war.

Despite her past, Terzic says she most relates to some of Ghost Bikini's lyrics, “I’m living doing everything I wanna do.” On and off stage, Terzic maintains a one-of-a-kind style. Terzic puts it best herself: “I have always had an appreciation for old clothes and things; like most people, I feel like I belong in another time.”
