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.

Hudson Mohawke - Indian Steps (feat. Antony)

Taken from Hudson Mohawke’s recent Lantern LP, Indian Steps is a beautifully emotive track featuring haunting vocals from the inimitable Antony Hegarty. With German director Daniel Sannwald behind the unexpected visuals, inspiration came from Rodin’s The Kiss. “For the video I recreate that sculpture with two elderly bodies,” explains Daniel. “It was very touching and moving to see two aging bodies in such an intimate way. I wanted to use them as a symbol of time but also to capture the beauty of such vulnerability.” Explore a mysterious landscape of skin and bones as Anthony’s vocals wash over you, tracing lines of experience and memories in gold. The poetic lyrics tell of a relationship ending; the break of a special bond when so much love remains. “I strongly believe that every deep love has its own place and space and therefore lives on forever,” continues the director. May we all find our own eternal safe place in this stunning collaboration.

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.
