The six-track effort is a companion to her 2016 LP Hopelessness, and brings together politically charged lyrics with hectic electronic production. The artist addresses environmental issues, greed and political corruption, weighing heavily on the dangers of toxic masculinity--an appropriate fear, considering our current President.
ANOHNI took to Facebook today, expanding on her views about men, writing that they've long "enslaved women and attempted to appropriate female creative power, re-casting themselves as gods and creators." She calls out President Trump and his cabinet, warning mothers that they're sons are "trapped in a nightmare" without the responsibility to understand the effects of committing ecocide, "in a final and irreversible assault upon creation itself."
The only sollution to alter humanity's "desperate course," ANOHNI suggests, is for global women to hold an intervention, using "their innate knowledge of interdependency, deep listening, empathy and self-sacrifice" to provoke change.
