Titled Anchor, the record is the first Birds of Tokyo fans have heard from Ian Kenny and his boys since their last album saw them tour Australia relentlessly. Time away has given the band a new and refreshed perspective on making music and with the EP eventually being finished upon the band's return home, it's clear that Birds of Tokyo are ready to get back in touch with Australian fans and show em what they've been up to.
