Anna Calvi – Hunter

Hunter is the embodiment of the feeling of truly letting go. For the songwriter and virtuosic guitarist,it was a catharsis, an opportunity to be more truthful than ever. The first new music since 2014’s collaborative release with David Byrne, Strange WeatherEP, her self-titled debut album and the 2013 follow-up One Breath,Hunter is a visceral album exploring sexuality and breaking the laws of gender conformity. A queer and a feminist record, it is galvanising in its hunt for freedom. It was important to Calvi that it was as vulnerable as it is strong; as beautiful as it is harsh; as much about the hunted as it is about the hunter.
