The lead singer and songwriter from Antony and the Johnsons
has collaborated with Oneohtrix Point Never
and Hudson Mohawke
on her latest work. With her official name changed to ANOHNI
, the album HOPELESSNESS is set to an electronic dance soundtrack with soulful vocals and direct lyrics addressing surveillance, drone warfare, and ecocide. HOPELESSNESS is a departure from the singer's recent symphonic collaborations. The album seeks to disrupt assumptions about popular music by embedding vigorously political lyrics within dance/pop tracks.
