ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Anomie Belle’s Inky Drips EP centers around the track “Inky Drips” off her record The Crush (September 2011).

It didn’t take long for critics and filmmakers to notice Anomie Belle’s music. Her music has been featured in Xbox’s Alan Wake, Showtime’s United States of Tara, and MTV’s Jersey Shore. Anomie Belle has also toured and collaborated with an impressive roster of folks including Tricky, The Album Leaf, Mr. Lif (The Perceptionists), Jon Auer (The Posies, Big Star), Little Dragon, and Bajofondo. She also shared the stage with Bonobo, Phantogram, Kid Koala, Azure Ray, The Heavy, Efterklang, Emily Wells, Grieves & Budo, Sea Wolf, Asobi Seksu, Kimya Dawson, Mirah, Tristeza, Yppah and others.

URB Magazine has called her music “sultry, smoky, seductive, sexy and dark.” Performer Magazine called her songs “beautiful symphonies,” “melancholy with sensual beats, lush strings and layered vocals.” Innocent Words magazine went as far as to call Anomie Belle “a musical mastermind.” Decide for yourself. Her music is a mix of electronic and organic instrumentation, fiercely sensual vocals, and thickly layered, ethereal soundscapes. The more you listen, the more you’ll find.

The deep layers in Anomie Belle music are accompanied equally complex emotions. “Piecing her name together from words meaning social unrest and a beautiful and charming woman, Seattle trip-hopper Anomie Belle has lofty aims echoing her view of music as a more powerful vehicle for education and enlightenment than classroom teachings. Meshing sultry vocals and moody instrumental programming, with a healthy amount of layering added to both, Anomie Belle tackles spectacle and alienation both lyrically and sonically,” writes Seattle Weekly. “Beautiful Desocialization and is a moniker quite apropos for Anomie Belle,” writes Hellbomb. “Her songs are critical of blind adherence to consumerism. They’re swanky and sexy, but they also champion individuality and critical thinking.”

“I grew up in your prototypical American suburb,” Anomie Belle explains. “The manicured lawns, strip mall parking lots, chain stores, and massive expanses of cement and housing developments depressed me. I chose the moniker Anomie Belle to speak to the decadent alienation of the American dream. Growing up, music became my outlet. Bored by video games and dollhouses, I plunked away on my parent’s piano for hours at a time, teaching myself to play blues riffs and writing little pop songs.”

From there she was off. Once Anomie Belle figured out how to multi-track record she studied guitar, drums, voice, and audio engineering, and continued to play classical violin in orchestras throughout. She spent four years working as a studio musician, chamber violinist and producer in Madrid, New York, Buenos Aires, Glasgow and Amsterdam. When she returned to the United States, Anomie began concocting her eloquently sultry, sexy style, drawing upon the multitude of genres that had surrounded her. Anomie Belle's dark, introspective and sensual electronic music has been garnering much attention since her debut in 2008, and she is back with the provocative new single Inky Drips. Listen for yourself.
