“Drone Bomb Me” – ANOHNI

ANOHNI, formerly the singer of Antony and the Johnsons, has departed from the art pop sound that previously brought her success. “Drone Bomb Me” is the manifestation of this evolution. As she described in her interview with Annie Mac, ANOHNI wanted to move away from the passiveness of her previous work, and develop sharper, more direct music both sonically and lyrically. Telling the story of a child whose family has been killed by a drone bombing,”Drone Bomb Me” achieves ANOHNI’s goal and more. Although the track is filled with sorrow, it features production by Hudson Mohawke who brings his usual bravado to the collaboration. With this powerfully affecting dance song, ANOHNI pushes the boundaries of pop music, exemplifying its remarkable possibilities.
