Anomie Belle’s music reflects remnants of every place she has lived, and the many lives that have crossed her path, with periods of time in New York City, Madrid, Glasgow, Portland, Amsterdam, Buenos Aires, Seattle and London coloring the lens of her creative works.
Despite liberal parents and an enthusiastic childhood, the alienating crush of suburban conformity— from the ubiquitous name‐brand label jeans and sneaker s to strip malls and concrete sidewalks— encouraged Anomie to seek out environments where her imagination and music would flourish. After years of repression for the sake of fitting in with suburban norms, she chose the name “Anomie Belle” to represent herself as a conglomeration of “normlessness” and “beauty.”
A swirl of sexuality, spirituality, and a critical opinion of consumer culture weave through the artivist’s work—if only because it’s the one place s he feels completely free to be herself. Openly identifying as queer and feminist, her music is a gentle slurry of genres known for their out spokenness and melodic brilliance: classical, trip‐hop, electronica, jazz, and hip‐hop. “My value s are honesty, authenticity, vulnerability, and humility balanced with empowerment. I want to role model something to people through being who I am and putting the music I make out into the world.”
Layering her songwriting with cinematic programming, and painting it with organic instrumentation and electronic compliments, Anomie’s work is a spray of soundscapes piqued with her vocals: heavy percussion, strings, and a smattering of synths. A fiercely independent and feminist voice, the singer’s belief in the possibility of empowerment, the need for freedom from social labels, and the power that comes from questioning anything and everything shines through in every poetic lyric of her musical catalog.
Over the years, she has toured with Little Dragon, The Album Leaf, Tricky, Bajofondo, Sea Wolf, and others, and collaborations have seen her work with Mr. Lif, Jon Auer of The Posies, Ian Pickering of Sneaker Pimps, Trespassers William and Yppah.
“Anomie Belle has proven herself to be a legitimate quintuple threat as a masterful composer, producer, programmer, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist. Her sultry, smoky vocals combine with her slithery, seductive programming for the perfect balance of sexiness and darkness. Having toured with the likes of electronica stalwarts Tricky and Little Dragon, Anomie Belle is poised to find herself among the most revered names of the genre” – URB Magazine
“She sings with such soul, it is difficult not to be captivated. Her voice is a perfect marriage of Beth Gibbons and Amy Winehouse. In fact, Belle nearly manages to convey the pain of emotional desolation on par with the aforementioned musicians. Along with the downtempo structure, her carefully restrained vibrato, and the dreamy backing ambiance, [Slither] is not one to be missed for those familiar with trip hop and minimalism.” – In Your Speakers
“[She’s] a rare breed of artist that cracks into my cynicism. As indie music becomes a fragmented jigsaw of hi-fi and lo-fi, remixes and mashups, she releases The Crush with a full spectrum of whimsical electronic effects, strings, and grainy allegorical vocals. Far from recycled pop hooks, her music is ominous and theatrical, composed layer by layer, somewhat like Zola Jesus.” – Indie Shuffle
“She makes dark social issues eerily lovely.” – KEXP
“There it is straight away that sexy, fragile voice that we love about Anomie Belle taking over […] just another perfect example as to why this artist deservers a place in the music scene. We are simply amazed and captivated by this woman.” – Entertainment Focus
“She combines electronic and experimental elements with sensual beats, lush strings and layered vocals, dropping the listener into the melancholy heart of her beautiful symphonies. Anomie Belle will dissolve you.” – Performer Magazine
