Creator of vibrant, complex music that is as enthralling as it is genius.
After releasing his LP ‘Ceremonial’ on always innovative label Tru Thoughts, London-based Tokyo native Anchorsong will be delivering a live performance at Birthdays with a string quartet for a truly spell-binding show.
Often described as a painter of music, Anchorsong is known for his live sets in which he creates complicated, rhythmic tribal grooves and compelling melodies on nothing but a synth pad and keyboard. This ability to create intricate music from seemingly thin air has earned Anchorsong a devoted following. His sound marries traditional influences and instruments with a modern crispness, creating a richly textured tapestry of outward-looking and original sounds that highlight his incredibly well-honed production skills.
A captivating performer with music that pushes the boundaries of the electronic genre, a show by Anchorsong is always a guaranteed success.
