Teeth Agency consists of Jesse Hackett and Mariano Chavez. The musical duo has released music on Stones Throw and Nyege Nyege Tapes under the Metal Preyers’ guise.
The song was inspired by “listening to devotional records and after a conversation with a friend about how many spiritual church hymnals were composed anonymously,” explains Hackett. “In the modern age of self, the notion of creating selfless unnamed art and music, inspired the lyrics and mood of the piece. I’m not religious but this composition is my take on modern, uplifting and devotional meditation in these times of great uncertainty.”
‘Anon’ is released alongside an animated video based on the single’s artwork created by Chavez and animator Diamond McNabb. Based on a drawing of a cloud descending a hill, the idea was to show a constant landscape as things dissolve and evolve over time. “We wanted to portray a sense of time by capturing millions of years over three minutes,” says Chavez. “There is something about rebirth and hope in the song, that we felt matched the sentiment of hope humans have held over time.”
You can purchase the new track on Bandcamp if you haven’t done so already.
