ANOHNI – “PARADISE” EP (Released 17th March)

£14.99 – LP & CD

ANOHNI will release “PARADISE,” the companion EP to last year’s HOPELESSNESS, one of the most critically acclaimed and discussed albums of 2016, on March 17th via Rough Trade Records. 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 politicized lyrics.

“PARADISE” includes new songs as well as material recently debuted live. 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.” The music is wild and invigorating with a heavy beat conceived by Hudson Mohawke and twisting vocal treatments by Daniel Lopatin.

Nine portraits of women on the EP artwork reflect the feminine oracle that ANOHNI evoked in her live concert tour.

HOPELESSNESS was named one of the albums of the year, in the following

Crack Magazine, Loud & Quiet The Guardian, Time Out, Mixmag, Attitude, Uncut, The Skinny

New Statesmen, The Sunday Times, Q, Mojo, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, NME.

HOPELESSNESS was nominated for the last years Mercury Prize.
