Butterflies 05:57


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

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

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

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

“It’s got energy and it’s fun... it’s good, good, good work.” - BEN WATT

“Butterflies” is the fourth single to be lifted from Anchorsong’s acclaimed ‘Ceremonial’ album, which came out at the beginning of 2016, winning over tastemakers including BBC 6Music’s Lauren Laverne (who has repeatedly proclaimed it one of her top albums of 2016), Tom Ravenscroft and Steve Lamacq; and gaining ongoing support from long-time champion Huw Stephens (BBC R1).

Originally from Japan, but now based in London, on this record producer Masaaki Yoshida combines his unique gift for catchy melodic phrasing with idiosyncratic beats and vintage African influences. The melodic and rhythmic beauty of “Butterflies” is enhanced with delicate Celesta and acoustic guitar, making for a luminous track that evokes images of butterflies at sunset.
