TUNE anrimeal - I Am Not
The second track to be shared from anrimeal's debut album Could Divine. A departure from the acoustic tenderness of first single ‘Marching Parades’, ‘I Am Not’ is fervent and electric, building from a melancholic simmer to a fever pitch of dissociative vocals and discordant guitar. The single comes bolstered even further by an industrial remix from Corvax, as well as a new homemade video which places Ana’s free-associative poetry front and centre.
While the rest of Could Divine was recorded solo, ‘I Am Not’ sees contributions from guitarist Huw Roberts and percussionist Miguel Crespo. “The Beefheart-like instrumental chaos at the track’s peak was very much intentional,” says Ana, “And I knew from the beginning that I'd have to ask for help. Collaborating isn't very natural to me, simply because my work is so personal. In the end, calling on friends for help made this song exactly what I wanted - because of their incredible talent!”
