BEST NEW EDM: ANOHNI - PARADISE

3/4/17
Anohni - Paradise

With this absolutely gorgeous track of haunting electronic drone, ANOHNI cements herself as one of the great emotive voices of our time. We are the Guard are very excited to shared “Paradise” with you. This is her first track since 2016’s full-length masterpiece, HOPELESSNESS.

 

ANOHNI - PARADISE

“Paradise” boasts production from both Hudson Mohawke and Oneohtrix Point Never and manages to turn her lyrics of hopelessness and dreams of paradise into something that’s both simultaneously soul-crushing and spirit-uplifting.  This is THE song you want blaring through speakers on the space ship of life hurtling through the void towards certain doom.  While the song is a message to our new Leader and the men that do harm to our world ANOHNI suggest that “only an intervention by women around the world, with their innate knowledge of interdependency, deep listening, empathy and self-sacrifice, could possibly alter our species’ desperate course.” 

Let’s hope this song plays as they do.  It’s the perfect soundtrack to the somber revolution we need.

Kurt Kroeber doesn’t own a dog, operates Soundbleed (the world’s only dance party comedy talk show rave), and is down to party with you. Come up some time and say “Hey dude!” But definitely make sure to casually drop the secret Illuminati password.
