With an impressive and versatile pedigree as a classically trained musician, composer, producer and media artist, Anomie elegantly weaves together intricate and nuanced electronics with visionary dancefloor sensibilities, all culminating in the stratospheric sound experience that is her debut album. Her EPs Millions and Forward Backward made the world sit up and take notice, and her immaculate live manner has already earned her key slots at leading electronic international festivals. Permanent Revelation is a journey of political and spiritual awakening told through sound, a reflection of the unity of struggle worldwide, from the Arab Spring to the Occupy movement. Taking its cue from time away in Europe during a time of global political unrest, the album opens with a strike of revolution, melding into the optimistic spirit of the resistance of protest music. Fusing together a spectrum of influences from jazz, hip-hop and reggae through to the dissenting, driving rhythms of techno and bass, the thread of the album stays true to the spirit of rebellion that the unique Anomie sound is infamous for. Versatile synths wax and wane around catch cries from the picket line, underscored by defiant rhythm and dancefloor soul. Permanent Revelation features contributions from the likes of Canadian beatboxer/MC Shamik on the defiant "Rise Up," and the sassy Billie Rose Prichard's lyrical talents on "Knife's Edge," beefing up what is already a scintillatingly diverse and unquestionable selection of reasons why Anomie will be a name on all electronic tastemaker's lips this coming year.
