"Compelling work from a particularly talented sonic artist" - 4 STARS - SONGLINES
"It's got energy and it's fun... it's good, good, good work." - BEN WATT (Buzzing Fly / Everything But The Girl)
"Anchorsong is absolute fire" - GILLES PETERSON (BBC 6MUSIC)
"A one-man wonder... a genius" - HUW STEPHENS (BBC R1)

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", which emerges as a single alongside a 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. The longer original version and a Radio Edit both appear on the promo.
