In a four-star review of the record, NME wrote: “It should come as no surprise that Anohni has cited Marvin Gaye’s ‘What’s Going On’ as one of the guiding lights for this project.“As well as sonic touchpoints – there’s much of Gaye in the record’s smooth melodic momentum – both are proof that music that is warm, inviting and tender can still be vital and engaged; that beauty, hope, rage, disillusion, dejection, sorrow and joy can not only co-exist, but thrive in one another’s company.”Anohni will also be embarking on an extensive North American tour later in the year with the Johnsons.“It is my first time touring since 2016, and first time with a band in 14 years,” ANOHNI said.
