Think about this for a second: When you’re listening to most music nowadays, a lot of the popular songs on the radio are samples from others. Don’t get us wrong, it takes a genius to be able to turn any song into what they’ve done recently. What we’re saying is that it truly is inspiring and heartwarming to listen to music that is organically created. There was no sample, there was no sound or riff taken from another. All this was the ability from creative thinking and scratch-mentality. Brought up from the inner workings of the brain to spew out a production that resonates to the us. The band is always committed to recording everything themselves, and features a unique combination of oboe, strings quartet, trumpet, french horn, clarinet and many other interesting sounds in their production, bringing a warmth and authenticity to their sound. People take years and years to master the sounds of these instruments but ANKO have such an ear to put together a masterpiece.
Take a listen to ANKO and their newest EP, ‘Waved’ to light up the skies this Spring and catapult yourself onto an epic Summer. 8/10 Aaron Escobe
