Careful, my fly friends, or you'll find yourself trapped in ANACHNID's musical, mystical web. This dreamweaver moves effortlessly within and around the silky smooth production that supports the framework of electro-ethereal sounds, chill beats, striking voice and, at times, venomous lyrics, generations in the making. ANACHNID (aka Kiki Harper) is a multidisciplinary, urban Indigenous creator, as well-versed in the oral traditions of Oji-Cree and Mi'kmaq storytelling as she is rapping and singing over trancy dance-pop. Like the spider, ANACHNID's venom is also a future antidote: her story-song-creations feature stream of conscience lyrics intentionally captured with decidedly modern technology, ensuring a longevity that may even survive oral tradition. From the haunting to the heavy this spider who sings with the wolves knows how to hold her audience.
