ANOHNI kündigt ‘Paradise’ EP an und teilt neuen Song

Nach ihrem absolut großartigen Album HOPELESSNESS aus dem letzten Jahr hat Anohni eine neue EP mit dem Namen ‘Paradise’ angekündigt. Den gleichnamigen Song gibt es als Vorgeschmack.


Die EP versteht sich als “companion” zu Hopelessness und die sechs enthaltenden Songs entstanden wieder in Zusammenarbeit mit Oneohtrix Point Never und Hudson Mohawke.

Auf dem Cover-Pic zu ‘Paradise’ sind die Frauen abgebildet, die sowohl die Darstellerinnen in den Visuals auf Anohnis Live shows im letzten Jahr waren als auch in ihren Musikvideos zu Hopelessness zu sehen waren.

On the title track “Paradise”, Anohni voices ecstatic alienation, describing a dystopian life filled with horror, awe, comfort and threat. She expresses a sense of disembodiment: “Myself, I’m here… not here, as a point of consciousness”.

ANOHNI: PARADISE (official track)


On 17th March Anohni will release “Paradise”, the companion EP to last year’s ‘Hopelessness’, one of the most critically acclaimed and discussed albums of 2016. In collaboration with Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke, on “Paradise” Anohni seeks to support activist conversations and disrupt assumptions about popular music through the collision of electronic sound and highly politicised lyrics. The EP includes new songs as well as material recently debuted live.

Zu Ep, die am 17. März erscheint hat Anohni ein Statement abgegeben, das ihr unten lesen könnt. Über eine Vinyl Version gibt es noch keine Infos, kommen aber sicher schnell.

A statement from Anohni: 

Her gentle touch

My Father’s Hands

Rest on my Throat

“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 biologies 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.”

Tracklist ‘Paradise’ :
1. In My Dreams
2. Paradise
3. Jesus Will Kill You
4. You Are My Enemy
5. Ricochet
6. She Doesn’t Mourn Her Loss
