Imogen Snell, meanwhile, the long term creative director for The xx, known for its incredible album artwork, works closely with designer Grace Wales-Bonner, and recently has been spearheading the creative rebirth of Anna Calvi’s true punk self.

Imogen Snell: I’ve just worked on a full album campaign for Anna Calvi. She played me her music quite early on, and it has this incredible raw, feminine, and quite punk sound. I was immediately taken with the music because it was much more intense than anything I’d heard from her before. I went and met her, and we started discussing how it’s a queer album, and she’s feeling empowered, and we really got on. Suddenly the visual world just came to me, and I went away and did a bunch of research and it was bang on, she loved it.

All the references she’d told me about were totally in my world — power and performance, and tailoring and woman. It was just the perfect project to me, it was so visual. She gave me a lot of freedom, and I got to work with Emma Wyman from Dazed who’s a brilliant stylist… we basically made an incredible world. Sometimes you don’t have that as a creative director, when you get brought on to execute someone’s vision. Of course I understand briefs, but this was just a particular project I was proud of because it was close to visuals I like. We had a direct line about what we were trying to do.

Filming and photographing was prohibited and I suppose they were more strictly checking on that at the Elbphilharmonie than elsewhere. I think it was officially filmed though and might be broadcast on German TV some day.

The review on that radio show was good altogether but excellent for Anna in particular, pointing out that her performance was the most outstanding one, saying that she made Bowie's songs 'her own'.

Probably at Saint Denis Festival there will be more echo.
But I can’t understand why her official pages still doesn’t really work!

Few pics, no audio and only three video recorded entirely.

Such a disappointment, as always...
