The alt-pop outfit CocoRosie are busy in the studio working on their new album but have taken time out of their busy schedule to write a protest song in relation to a certain balding eagle who will be inaugurated at the end of the week.
‘Smoke ‘Em Out’ sees the band use a wealth of biblical references to show the struggles for women in particular in the current climate. With the pair rapping over some bouncing beats they have enlisted ANOHNI to sing the hook and keep this protest song something to stick to your eardrums.
The pair said to Pitchfork: “Today we share a new song to inspire the weary-disappointed hearts of so many crest-fallen citizens. We just started working on a new album, but “Smoke ‘em Out” begged to be turned loose on the world now, as a means of participation during these turbulent yet invigorating times. Joined on guest vocals by our fellow Future Feminist ANOHNI, ‘Smoke ‘Em Out’ welcomes the new character who will be occupying the White House with a mob of women and children armed with forks and knives.”
“In the wake of this unnatural disaster, we feel a call to rise, shout, and burn the house down. “The future is female” and a very necessary force to be reckoned with.”
