Anthony And The Mountain – “Raygun”

Anthony And The Mountain is the project of queer Utica, NY-based musician Anthony Bianco. They’ve been putting out music since since 2011, and their next full-length (and first billed as And The Mountain), called I Felt Tall And Full Of Blood, is their most extravagant and fully-realized yet, lending a glossy sheen to the subdued electro-pop that they were making before. “Raygun,” the album’s lead single, is a wriggling and theatrical come-on that sees Bianco begging for destruction or devotion, whatever comes first and easiest. “Come and lay one on my metal lips,” they goad. But the infatuation comes attached to a warning: “Switch my raygun to live and lethal, come on/ Cause I’m telling ya, oh baby, I’m crazy.” The pulsating, futuristic beats that Bianco creates prove to be a perfect match for songs that are about learning to feel comfortable in a body that often feels alien, and “Raygun” transcends by being so blissfully unique and earnest. Listen below.
