ANOHNI – “Marrow” Video

For many of the videos from her new album Hopelessness, ANOHNI has simply presented a striking figure lip-syncing a song’s lyrics against a plain black background: Naomi Campbell in “Drone Bomb Me,” Storm Lever in “Crisis,” ANOHNI herself in “I Don’t Love You Anymore.” The latest of those clips is for “Marrow,” and it features Lorraine O’Grady, a conceptual performance artist who’s been active for decades and who seems very happy to be in the video. Most of those other videos have a doomy, despairing feeling to them, so it’s oddly powerful to see someone smile in one of these videos. Check it out below.

Hopelessness is out now on Secretly Canadian.
