about

“I just wanna kick back in a part of life when things get nice again, right now they’re frightening...”

It’s summer, haunted by the specter of Donald Trump’s finger hovering over the red button. It’s in this context that Imani Coppola – witchy seeker, bratty contrarian, musical chameleon – is airing her take-no-prisoners views about where we’re at on her new solo album, Hypocrites.

In what’s partly a continuation of her epic, dystopian previous album, The Glass Wall (2012), Coppola delivers a biting send-up of a bipolar world in profound denial – lost in cat memes and smartphone solipsism. The album’s breezy, summery sound belies an ominous undertone. Hypocrites is like a day at the beach gone wrong. It draws your eye to the long shadows in the sand: happy gone frantic, hope turned hysterical. With her signature candor, Coppola takes on all our modern-world afflictions, from Tinder culture on Swipe to “detox, retox” health obsessions and the hunger for a shortcut to enlightenment on IPA.

Imani Coppola brings her unique combination of funny and knowing, irritable and resilient to the task. A multi-talent who defies categorization, Coppola has been captivating us with her eclecticism and raw honesty ever since she released her dazzling debut album Chupacabra with Columbia Records at the age of 18. Her solo work – ranging from the funky/r&b-infused Afrodite to the punky Black & White Album and the dance and glam rock of The Glass Wall – is as impossible to pigeonhole as the many projects she’s been part of over the years (Peeping Tom, Little Jackie and most recently the Ruby Friedman Orchestra).

Coppola’s “banana-split personality” extends to her use of personas in her work. Reflecting the album’s “funny-haha/funny-sad” duality, Hypocrites flips between different voices. On introspective tracks like I’m an Artist and Mixed Nut we get a “nerdy rap voice, which is me – not trying to sound cool – being obnoxious, even.” Songs like Beach Boy and I’m the Shit, on the other hand, feature “a male character: the egomaniac boy who’s totally unconscious. I’m fascinated by that – I want to be that person,” says Coppola.

She describes the album as “an inside joke between me and the zeitgeist” – lyrically as well as musically, with its nods to trap and liberal use of autotune. “We’re all evolving into cyborgs,” says Coppola. “I can’t work out whether to kill myself over it or make art about it.”

Like her previous albums, Hypocrites is as much about a personal search for authenticity as it is about her irritation with the wider world. “No one gives a shit, nobody including myself – I guess that makes me a hypocrite,” Coppola sings on Mixed Nut. On Cray, she describes a future-gone-awry vision of herself as “talking to myself in the park, crazy pigeon lady.” But in that wildness beats the emotional heart of Coppola’s work – a glorious cacophony, forever skirting contradiction, candid about the world’s neurosis, candid about her own.

(Oh my god)
I speak in upspeak
don’t sweat the technique
I always sound like I’m asking questions
even when I’m not so don’t make a suggestion
even though I am cause I need validation
I don’t judge, so don’t judge me
I mean I do, I mean I wouldn’t judge you
I’m batshit, banana split personality I’m cuckoo
duh I’m confused, how can I not be, no apologies
I don’t understand this world, the shits fuckin deep
everybody got zero fucks to give and no one gives a shit
nobody including myself I guess that makes me a hypocrite
whoa don’t ask me to pick a side, I’m half black half white
Italian father, Afro mother, when asked to choose, I just choose other

I’m a mixed nut, ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
I’m a mixed nut, ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya

Shut up seriously, I can’t, I just can’t
I’m not so sure I know what it is that I can’t do (hmmm…but I know I can’t do it)
He was like, really? And I was like, really.
And they were like, really?! And we were like REALLY!
Duh I’m confused, how can I not be, it’s not funny.
I don’t understand this world, the shits really deep (REALLY!)
everybody got zero fucks to give and no one gives a shit
nobody including myself I guess that makes me a hypocrite
whoa! Don’t ask me to pick a race I’m half outer space
Martian father, Earthling mother, when asked to chose I just choose other

I’m a mixed nut, ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
I’m a mixed nut, ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
I’m a mixed nut, ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya

I was burnin for his lips so bad I was embarrassed so embarrassed
never needed to be kissed so bad I was embarrassed, so embarrassed
he would talk I wouldn’t understand I was distracted, I couldn’t focus
I only wanted him to grab my hand I was so nervous, so damn nervous

Ima do a little dance if he likes me, jump up and shake my ass if he likes me
wish in really fast if he likes me, put this thing on blast if he likes me
crush if he likes me, touch if he likes me, dance, smash if he likes me
crush if he likes me, touch if he likes me, dance think he likes me, smash think I might be

Hurry up I need to scratch that itch I feel so restless, so damn anxious

my mind is racing like a lunatic, so self conscious, does he want this
and now I really gotta know this or Ima loose it, Ima loose it

Ima do a little dance if he likes me, jump up and shake my ass if he likes me
wish in really fast if he likes me, put this thing on blast if he likes me
crush if he likes me, touch if he likes me, dance, smash if he likes me
crush if he likes me, touch if he likes me, dance think he likes me, smash think I might be

Got no choreography, it’s spazzy how I move my feet
clapping every single beat, spinnin’ and he’s kissing on me
squirming round and wigglin’, even when he’s not funny I’m giggling’
I couldn’t focus, I only wanted him to grab my hand I was so nervous, so damn nervous
Ima do a little dance if he likes me, jump up and shake my ass if he likes me
wish in really fast if he likes me, put this thing on blast if he likes me
crush if he likes me, touch if he likes me, dance, smash if he likes me
crush if he likes me, touch if he likes me, dance think he likes me, smash think I might be

It shows that it makes you happy
to know that you control me

my feelings you’ve discarded
you just sit on my book at night when I’m reading
shit in the litter box while I’m eating
