UK's ANEMO Release "slow burn" On City Canyons Records

City Canyons Records announces the release of "slow burn" a remarkably original album by a new creative force from the UK, 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 its general release date on September 6, "slow burn" will be available in limited quantities online at CD Baby and at the City Canyons Records Online Store.

ANEMO is bracingly fresh, featuring its own definitive sound which combines crunchy drum and expressive guitar 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 their first CD in late 2001 and made first public appearance at the Hippodrome Theatre in September for the BBC.
