Description

Out 25th June, Yemaya is the long-awaited new album and Tru Thoughts debut from future soul and electronica duo Anushka. Therelease features proceeding singles You My Love, Speak To Me and Brave which have seen support from the likes of GillesPeterson, Lauren Laverne, Jamz Supernova, Nemone (BBC 6Music), Jack Saunders (BBC Radio 1), EARMILK, Music Is My Sanctuary, Clash Magazine and Toshio Matsuura. Released on limited edition transparent numbered double vinyl, the LP takes its name from the Orisha Yemaya the Goddess ofthe Sea, protector of women and the Eternal Mother in the Santeria/Yoruba religion. It is believed in Santeria that Yemaya guidesand supports her children, helping them to grow; as explored with the reference to the life-giving essence of water in focus trackBad Weather. Celebrating their progression and those who have helped them on the way, the title expresses the oneness that theduo felt making the record. This growth is explored on album opener So Far Journey. Written by Victoria Port (singer/songwriter) as a call to the ancestors,the track explores coming back to yourself and who you truly are after a period of feeling displaced and lost. With astrally chargedsynths from Max Wheeler (producer), it sits alongside the cosmic love story of You My Love and the luminous Serenity.Speaking of the latter, Port adds: Its that feeling when a person makes it feel like home wherever you are. When something isstressful and you know they can help you find your peace.
