Fatima Al Qadiri “Star-Spangled”
An ominous take on our national anthem.
Arriving just in time for Independence Day, Fatima Al Qadiri’s delivers a rendition of the national anthem for Adult Swim’s Singles Program. “Star-Spangled” takes the American national anthem and reinterprets the melody with spaced-out synths.
In Qadiri’s own words:
‘Star-Spangled’ is dedicated to American national nightmares. On one hand, dark dreams of suburban serial killers and mangled hitch-hike heads. On the other, a false hope of national greatness cooked by covert agendas.”
Listen to a stream of the track below, which will be available for download Friday.
