Anohni has just released a video for Crisis, which comes from her Mercury Prize-nominated album Hoplessness. It features New York performer Storm Lever, and it is very simple but totally gripping.
In a statement accompanying the clip, Anohni explained:
“De-escalation cannot occur until we truly account for what the United States has done. I wanted to model what that might look like on a personal level as an American citizen. There is an unspoken sense that the atrocities our country has committed in the Middle East are too grave to really acknowledge or account for. And yet for peace to really take hold, there is no other road forward.”
