ANOHNI‘s first solo record without her band displays a musical transition that sees her forego candlelit crooning chamber music for lush electronica. The attitude has also shifted: gone are the beautifully crushing tales found on 2005’s I Am A Bird Now in favour of bold, bitter and angry dissections of a deeply flawed humanity.

ANOHNI has described the album as “an electronic record with some sharp teeth,” and it most certainly is. Beguiling beats and soulful vocals ride into the consciousness like a Trojan horse before unleashing the fury within. But, perhaps, what she had not accounted for is that her extraordinary voice always wins out in the end. The divine noise she conjures has an innate optimism in and of itself.
