The revelry of 2016’s Hopelessness helped reinvent Anohni (f/k/a Antony and The Johnsons) in the mold of staunch political agitator. Self-aware and self-flagellating, Anohni speaks of deep concern for our very livelihood, as a species and as a civil society. With critical acclaim from The New York Times, The Guardian, The New Yorker, FADER and many more, Hopelessness came to represent a new and necessary musical language.

Anohni’s Paradise EP is the extension, into 2017, of a language of protest and distress, and includes several of the tracks featured in her 2016 live performances. The EP paints a volatile emotional landscape, veering from relational trauma, deep state existential confrontation, eco hex, despairing feral motherhood, Abrahamic loathing, and numb acceptance.
