about

“Amazing musician… What a beautiful record that is” - HUW STEPHENS (BBC R1)

“A brilliant, brilliant record... Buy it immediately” – TOM RAVENSCROFT (BBC 6MUSIC)

“One of 2016’s best... if you haven’t got this record yet, you MUST have it.” - LAUREN LAVERNE (BBC 6MUSIC)

“That’s excellent... something we’re very fond of” – STEVE LAMACQ (BBC 6MUSIC)

“Gorgeous” – NEMONE (BBC 6MUSIC)

“New and exciting… a warm, rhythmic and uplifting album” – XLR8R

“A bold move, but one that Yoshida has succeeded at” – DJ MAG

“Anchorsong's most daring material yet” – CLASH

The next single from Anchorsong’s ‘Ceremonial’ album on Tru Thoughts (Number 5 in BBC 6Music’s Albums of the Year 2016) is the attention-grabbing track “Mother”alongside new track, “Slider”.

Underpinned by intense and characterful, incredibly skilful Tribal drum rhythms, 'Mother' is a potent snapshot of the album as a whole, on which Anchorsong (AKA producer Masaaki Yoshida) took a stylistic leap by combining his unique gift for catchy melodic phrasing with idiosyncratic beats and vintage African influences. It is testament to the album's charm that a year after its release, and four singles later, the standout tracks from this powerful LP keep on coming.

Showcasing his more recent progress in the studio, this single also boasts a new bonus track, “Slider”, which sees the multi-talented Yoshida riding a dreamy guitar groove, laced with heart-melting strings and synths, and propelled by the subtle energy of an intricately woven backdrop of percussion.
