Listen: ANOHNI and the Johnsons – ‘Sliver of Ice’

British-born, New York-based ANOHNI presents ‘Sliver of Ice,’ the new single/video from ANOHNI and the Johnson’s forthcoming album, My Back Was A Bridge For You To Cross, out July 7th on Remote Control / Rough Trade. 

Now that I’m almost gone/Sliver of ice upon my tongue/In the day’s night/It tastes so good, it felt so right/For the first time in my life” ANOHNI sings on ‘Sliver of Ice,’ remembering some of the last words Lou Reed shared with her. The singer embodies the voice of someone whose experience becomes more awed and grateful as their life draws to a close; ANOHNI’s expressive and soulful vocals begin conversationally and end with wonderment and heartbreak, crying out atop the somber and intuitive strums of electric guitar played by producer Jimmy Hogarth.
