“Recently, a young woman asked me how we can make feminism more accessible to men. I told her that I don’t care about making feminism more accessible to men. In truth, I don’t care about making feminism more accessible to anyone. I care about making the liberties that men enjoy so freely fully accessible to women, and if men or celebrities claiming feminism for themselves has become the spoon full of sugar to make that medicine go down, so be it.”

So here it is. The video for ‘One For Sorrow’.
It’s made up of archive footage that I compiled from the Prelinger archive of instructional films from the 1950s on marriage, human reproduction and domesticity… The finished video is a Homeland-inspired collaboration with the amazing guys at Beatcast. It sees my original film collage projected onto a series of “brides through the ages”, also featuring my not-at-all-Miss-Havisham-esque extensive vintage wedding dress collection….

This week has been a surreal one…On Monday, Simple Minds revealed a secret that I’ve been keeping very close to my chest for a few months now…I’ll be joining them on tour throughout 2015! How this all came about is something of a distant echo of the duet I co-wrote for The Dark Flowers album a few year’s back which also featured Jim Kerr… You never know where things might lead! I’m looking forward to seeing some bookshops and art galleries around Europe. Pitstop suggestions welcome… Yesterday I also found out that “One For Sorrow” (from the forthcoming EP) is up for the BBC 6Music Rebel Playlist. This is voted for by YOU, the music-loving public. If you could spare a moment between now and midnight this Sunday evening (and maybe ask your friends, ex-lovers and your sister’s dogs to vote too…) if we win the vote it means that the song gets played on all the 6Music daytime shows for a whole week!It takes five seconds to vote here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0072lb2
I’d be very grateful indeed if you did : )
If you haven’t already pre-ordered the EP, all the details are here: http://www.iamtheanchoress.com/music. There’s still a few limited editions remaining.

"Davies is making music like nobody else at the moment…" - NME
"The Anchoress spins complex, emotionally gripping sagas" - Clash
"As unique and insidious a pop song as I’ve heard in eons!" - Adam Walton, BBC Wales
" A slow-burning, slinky, sophisticated helping of brooding pop noir, highlighting a fabulously narcotic vocal which prowls and curls itself around a song that is sinister, seductive and hypnotic.” - Von Pip
