Epilepsy Is Dancing
"Epilepsy is Dancing" -- the second single from Antony and the Johnsons' The Crying Light -- is one of the reasons Spin is raving that the band's new material is "scarily intimate and irresistibly beautiful". Antony and the Johnsons have again crafted a consummate single with the most unlikely of subjects. The B-side "Where is My Power?" burns slowly throughout hinting at its epic climax anchored by the voice Rolling Stone has called "a voice of singular majesty, an instrument of delicacy and rapture in which Nina Simone, Morrissey, and Joni Mitchell seem to inhabit the same breath". "Epilepsy is Dancing" is available as a CD single and 7" on Secretly Canadian.
