Antony Hegarty recently provided vocals for ‘Indian Steps’, a track on Hudson Mohawke’s new album Lanterns.
It must have felt like a fruitful collaboration because Antony has called upon Hudson Mohawke and Oneohtrix Point Never to co-produce AHOHNI album HOPELESSNESS.
‘4 Degrees’ is the first single from the more electronic-orientated project and has some of that Hud Mo trademark grand brass with Antony addressing climate change.
It was debuted with the text referencing the upcoming Climate Change conference in Paris:
In solidarity with the climate conference in Paris,
giving myself a good hard look,
not my aspirations but my behaviors,
revealing my insidious complicity.
It’s a whole new world.
Let’s be brave and tell the truth as much as we can
There will be gigs featuring ANOHNI + Hudson Mohawke + Oneohtrix Point Never Live in 2016:
Fri. June 17 – Barcelona, ES @ SONAR
Tue. July 12 – Ostrava @ Colors of Ostrava
Fri. July 15 – Turin, IT @ Flowers Festival
