Anohni - Paradise

Paradise
World without end
Hopelessness
Sinks into the earth
Crying Life
Kaleidoscope
Hopelessness
The shifting beauty

My mother's love
Her gentle touch
My father's hand
Rests on my throat
Hopelessness
I'm here, not here
As a point 
of Consciousness

Staring at myself
I feel giant and trapped
Seemingly
Without escape
I'm stuffed inside
My eternity
I'm here, not here
As a point of consciousness

====================================

"Our new leaders hope to crush our spirits and expedite ecocide in the name of virulent progress, consumerism and false security.
Like Jihadis, many capitalists and Christians compulsively seek to facilitate a righteous "holy war", or apocalypse.

For millennia, Men have enslaved women and attempted to appropriate female creative power, re-casting themselves as gods and creators.
This assault continues today in the forms of ruthless wealth and mineral extraction, genetic engineering, mass surveillance and war mongering.

But as Donald Trump and his cabinet now demonstrate, the skills encouraged in men by their biology and the tools that boys master in the playground have not equipped them to deal with the unprecedented global crisis we are now facing.

Mothers, your sons are trapped in a nightmare; they are not capable of responsibly negotiating the destructive agency that they now wield.

More profound even than a crime against humanity, fathers and sons now compulsively prepare to commit ecocide, in a final and irreversible assault upon creation itself.

Only an intervention by women around the world, with their innate knowledge of interdependency, deep listening, empathy and self-sacrifice, could possibly alter our species' desperate course."

- ANOHNI, January 2017

ANOHNI - Crisis

Crisis
If I killed your father with a drone bomb
How would you feel?

Crisis
If I killed your mother with a drone bomb
How would you feel?

Father
If I killed your children with a drone bomb
How would you feel?

Crisis
If I tortured your brother in Guantanamo
I’m Sorry

Now you’re cutting heads off
Innocent people on TV

Daughter
If I filled up your mass graves
And attacked your countries under false premise
I’m sorry

ANOHNI: CRISIS
starring Storm Lever

"We tortured people unmercifully. We probably murdered dozens of them during the course of that, both the armed forces and the CIA.” - General Barry McCaffrey

“There is no longer any doubt as to whether the current administration has committed war crimes… the only question that remains to be answered is whether those who ordered the use of torture will be held to account.”
General Antonio Taguba

“We need to look forward as opposed to looking backwards”. - President Barack Obama

"Because every president eventually leaves office, incoming chief executives have an incentive to quash investigations into their predecessor's tenure.” - Charlie Savage, New York Times

ANOHNI - Hopelessness

How did I become
the mother of this son?
The face and mind
and hands of virulence?

I, who curled in cave and moss
I, who gathered wood for fire
and tenderly embraced
How did I become a virus?

Hopelessness
I feel the hopelessness

I don’t care about me
I feel the animals and the trees
They got nowhere to go

I don’t care much about you
I don’t give a shit what happens to you
Now we blew it all away

Hopelessness
I feel the hopelessness

How did I become a virus?

I’ve been taking more than I deserve
Leaving nothing in reserve
Digging till the bank runs dry
I’ve been living a lie

ANOHNI - Drone Bomb Me

'Drone Bomb Me' is the beautiful yet brutal second single from HOPELESSNESS. As described by ANOHNI, “’Drone Bomb Me’ is a love song written from the perspective of a young girl in Afghanistan whose family has been executed by unmanned U.S. drones. She dreams of being annihilated.” The powerful video for “Drone Bomb Me” is directed by Nail and features an astonishing performance by Naomi Campbell. Directed by Nabil, art directed and styled by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy.

4 Degrees

ANOHNI, the lead singer from Antony and the Johnsons, has collaborated with Hudson Mohawke and Oneohtrix Point Never on “4 DEGREES.”  It is a bombastic dance track celebrating global boiling and collapsing biodiversity.  Rather than taking refuge in good intentions, ANOHNI gives voice to the attitude sublimated within her behavior as she continues to consume in a fossil fuel-based economy. To support the Paris climate conference, ongoing this December, ANOHNI releases “4 DEGREES,” the first single from her upcoming album HOPELESSNESS.

 

"4 DEGREES” emerged earlier this year in live performances. As discussed by ANOHNI, "I have grown tired of grieving for humanity, and I also thought I was not being entirely honest by pretending that I am not a part of the problem," she said. "'4 DEGREES' is kind of a brutal attempt to hold myself accountable, not just valorize my intentions, but also reflect on the true impact of my behaviors.”

 

ANOHNI’s “4 DEGREES” is available today via Rough Trade. ANOHNI, Hudson Mohawke and Oneohtrix Point Never will play select performances in the months to come. More shows will be announced soon, along with more information about this collaboration and ANOHNI’s HOPELESSNESS.
