The Hypnotist Collection
Lady Anemoia’s sophomore album, The Hypnotist Collection brings forth a new perspective on a life a lot of us may have never known. Inspired by lines from Bob Dylan's song "She Belongs to Me," this album focuses on the pivotal moments an artist experiences in their day-to-day life. Everything we encounter as human beings can lead to some kind of monumental realization that changes our course of direction. This album follows the timeline of a lost artist going through a major turning point that directs them closer to what is meant for them. In addition to the nostalgic feel of the songs, they are all inspired heavily by early 1900's carnival life; moving to a new city, longing to see the future, calling out for help, and having to come to terms with whatever fate is brought forth. Time is what leads us to destiny, and without the push of hard times the triumphant end may never see daylight. To be put simply: life is all about winning and failing. The Hypnotist Collection is a collection of misfit songs that piece themselves together to tell the story of a lost woman in the early 1900's whose only desire is to leave behind an old life, and make a name for herself. What she does with this new life awaits within the songs.
