“Burning down the house, smoke them out,” sing Bianca and Sierra Casady, aka CocoRosie, and ANOHNI on their new anti-Trump track, released today. The “house” referenced in “Smoke ‘em Out,” of course, is the White House, which after Inauguration Day this Friday, will be the residence of Donald Trump, who has the lowest approval rating of any President-Elect in history.

The sisters are currently at work on their next album, following 2015’s Heartache City. “Smoke ‘em Out” comes as an early release from those sessions. CocoRosie released the following statement on the track:

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 un-natural disaster, we feel a call to rise, shout, and burn the house down. Included is a poem we have written as a kind of channeling which digs deeper into the subtext of the lyrics exploring the unending end of time ambiance and the idea that “the future is female” and a very necessary force to be reckoned with.

peace,

Bianca & Sierra Casady
