Anathema Discuss Musical Direction Of New Album

(Prog) Anathema's Daniel Cavanagh says the band let their music dictate its own direction on upcoming album Distant Satellites - and one of their only deliberate moves was to introduce more electronic sounds to their tracks.

Their tenth studio record is due for release on June 9 via Kscope. Cavanagh says in a documentary clip: "What we try to do is be intuitive about it all. If a melody comes down from wherever, we try to let the music guide us, rather than the other way round.

"Sometimes we'll have to take the music in a certain direction - but more often you're listening rather than guiding; you're listening to where the music wants to go."

He hails bandmates John Douglas and Vincent Cavanagh for their "penchant and talent for electronica," adding: "It's something they've done really well."
