City Canyons Records announced today the Tuesday, September 6 release of "slow burn" a remarkably original album by a new creative force from the United Kingdom, ANEMO. Release of "slow burn" will be supported by a North American radio promotion program and a full scale publicity and public relations campaign both in traditional media and on the internet. Prior to the general release date in retail stores, "slow burn" will be available in limited quantities online at CD Baby and at the City Canyons Records Online Store. A separate release in the U.K., with full distribution, is slated for early 2006.
ANEMO is bracingly fresh, featuring its own definitive sound which combines crunchy drums and expressive guitars ranging from pop-rock to metal with knock-out stratospheric vocals, courtesy of lovely diva Hazelle Woodhurst. That sound and those vocals wrap around strong edgy lyrics and songwriting from the team of Woodhurst, Kingsley Sage (keyboards) with additional contributions from Matt Palmer (guitar).
ANEMO completed its first CD , under the Stoat Records label imprint, in late 2001 and made its first public appearance at the Hippodrome Theatre soon thereafter for the BBC. ANEMO is now signed to a multi-album deal with City Canyons Records.
Prior to the formation of ANEMO, Ms. Woodhurst worked as an actress with roles in various films including BBC ScotlandÂs ÂInvasion Earth" and ÂShakespeare in LoveÂ. She also appeared in Stanley KubrickÂs ÂEyes Wide Shut,Â participating in an on-film orgy with Tom Cruise among others. Kingsley Sage worked previously in the 5 piece band Jumbo which released 2 singles on the Stoat Records label and also produced material for a range of artists including Icelandic indie-hipsters Bellatrix (for the ÂDiamond GodsÂ Bowie tribute album). Matt Palmer spends most of his non-music time off the beaches of Devon surfing.
City Canyons Records is an independent record label based in Manhattan. Current releases include Jen Elliott and Bluestruck's THE SECRET'S OUT, David Steele's UNDERNEATH THE ICE, Valerian's INTIMATIONS OF SORROW and former Dead Can Dance drummer Peter Ulrich's ENTER THE MYSTERIUM.
