Irish emo-indie guys Anna’s Anchor have announced details of their debut album Nautical Miles. The album – which will be released on 23rd September – will feature the already released Signal Tower.
Front man Marty Ryan said: “A nautical mile is a little bit longer than a mile. I find that with everything I do, be it academically, work or music related, I always have to work a little harder to get where I want to.
“Things generally don’t fall into place for me, I’m a grafter and struggle through, but I generally get there in the end and that’s what Nautical Miles means to me.”
Nautical Miles is a very fitting name for an artist who went to as many landmarks as possible over four days for Signal Tower. Marty filmed for 14 hours straight and clocked up 1,300 miles across 200 locations.
Check out the video for Signal Tower below.
