Anohni - Hopelessness
Anohni, the singer of Antony and the Johnsons, released her new album, Hopelessness, on May 6th on Rough Trade. A collaboration with Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke, Hopelessness is a dance record with soulful vocals and lyrics addressing subjects including surveillance, drone warfare and ecocide. The album seeks to disrupt assumptions about popular music through the collision of electronic sound and highly politicized lyrics.
To coincide with the Climate Conference in Paris last December, Anohni released her debut single, “4 Degrees”. The Guardian called it “Hugely affecting… instantly earns its place in the pantheon of great musical protests.”
