VIDEO FRIDAY: ANIQO – Must Surrender
German artist ANIQO creates hauting soundscapes that come from dark places in the mind. Her latest song “Must Surrender” is about the fear of change, which can become our worst enimy. ANIQO gives some details:
Must surrender is about the liberation of deadlocked structures and the detachment of an inflexible identity. A view from the outside on social control mechanisms to perceive in which gears I am in myself. I think a meaningful life means transformation. If I do not change myself and change my point of view, I stop to move. I’m always scared of that.
The song symbolizes for me the challenge of this fear and the giving up of the own and external control with an accompanying risk. Only by surrendering, giving up security and letting go stuck thoughts, can I feel free.
The video – a collabration with Peter Hönnemann and Sebastian Ganschow – is racking up awards around the globe. Watch here on YouTube:
