Anna Calvi has released two new videos, one for ‘Hunter’ and another for ‘As A Man’.
The first is on YouTube so you can watch it below, and the second is on Apple Music so you can watch it at some point in the future we guess. Probs.
Both tracks are taken from her upcoming album, ‘Hunter’, due for release tomorrow (Friday, 31st August) via Domino.
Director Matt Lambert says of ‘Hunter’: “The ritual of self-love and body-exploration for many queer individuals is the first step toward feeling confident intimate moments with others.”
While Anna adds: “If a woman wants to be powerful she’s expected to exhibit ‘male’ traits. The woman in the song is trying to understand a man by imagining becoming him, but as it progresses she asks the man to become more like her instead.
“There’s been a lot of encouragement for women to become more like men if they want to get their voices heard, or be powerful. But there hasn’t been enough effort to get men to become more like women. Men are brought up believing that to be feminine is to be weak.
“If there is to be equality, both sexes need to be able to move to the middle of the spectrum. This song is about finding freedom in the non-binary world.”
