The Anchoress

The artistic moniker of Welsh artist Catherine Anne Davis, The Anchoress has been getting a lot of press attention with the title track of her second album, including a chart entry this week…

The track is a melange of electronica, backbeats and a distinctive lead vocal – very impressive. There are shades of Depeche Mode, not least in the line “situations like these” – the production is almost, to these ears, a bit overdone, and like DM, BM would love to hear this track deconstructed and stripped down because it is basically a very good structure and melody.

The album is out now and BM is off to explore the other tracks – but this is a great taster, albeit there was at least one other single out before this… actually just hearing ‘Show Your Face’ now, tasty…!
