"Brave" is an uplifting sax-fuelled groove from future soul and electronica duo Anushka. The release comes as the band announce their forthcoming album 'Yemaya' (released on 25th June on limited edition transparent double vinyl and available now for pre-order). The LP takes its name from the Orisha Yemaya - the Goddess of the Sea, protector of women and the Eternal Mother in the Santeria/Yoruba religion. It is believed in Santeria that Yemaya guides and supports her children, helping them to grow.

"Growing up and changing as a person can be scary", Victoria Port (singer/songwriter) says of the lyrics for "Brave", a track that expresses the strength that can come from time and change. Set against a backdrop from Max Wheeler (producer) that bounces between Dilla-inspired beats and a House tinge that is irresistible. The track follows previous singles "You My Love" and "Speak To Me" which received support from the likes of Lauren Laverne (BBC 6Music), Jack Saunders (BBC Radio 1) and Jamz Supernova (BBC 1Xtra).

Celebrating their growth and oneness both with the natural world and as a duo, 'Yemaya' is the band's first full release since their debut album 'Broken Circuit' (Brownswood), which gained support from the likes of Gilles Peterson (who has since played exclusive demo previews of upcoming music), Annie Mac, Phil Taggart, Jamz Supernova, B.Traits and Mary Anne Hobbs alongside features in The Guardian, The Arts Desk and Dazed.
