Intense and beautiful video from Anohni: “Drone Bomb Me”

Anohni is the solo musical project of the singer from Antony and the Johnsons. She recently released her newest record, Hopelessness, an album that addresses topics such as ecocide and drone warfare, on May 6th via Secretly Canadian/Rough Trade. A couple months ago she released a highly intense and emotional video, pain and beauty mixing like oil and water. The video is set to the track, “Drone Bomb Me.” Anohni say this about the track:

“’Drone Bomb Me’ is a love song written from the perspective of a young girl in Afghanistan whose family has been executed by unmanned U.S. drones. She dreams of being annihilated.”

Anohni’s unmistakable voice soars high above what blossoms into an intoxicating electronic dance track, with brutally darkened lyrics. The video features the gorgeous Naomi Campbell and was art directed and style by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy.

 

You can purchase Hopelessness from Anohni, iTunes, Amazon or a local record store.
