‘Crisis’ is ANOHNI’s version of America’s un-issued Chilcot report. The lyrics of of this song inventory some of the ways in which the U.S. has exacerbated and helped to provoke the current global ‘Crisis’.
“De-escalation cannot occur until we truly account for what the United States has done. I wanted to model what that might look like on a personal level as an American citizen. There is an unspoken sense that the atrocities our country has committed in the Middle East are too grave to really acknowledge or account for. And yet for peace to really take hold, there is no other road forward.” – ANOHNI
