Grimm Grimm is haunting, bizarre music at its best, and we know you’ll “We’ve Never Been This Far Before,” the new track from his forthcoming record Ginormous, out February 28. via MAGNIPH (U.S./ JAPAN/Australia) and TipTop (U.K./Europe).
London-based singer-songwriter experimentalist Koichi Yamanoha has been operating under the alias of Grimm Grimm since 2013. The project is an outlet for his fragile, haunted, otherworldly forays into baroque folk, futurist lyricism, and electroacoustic oddities.
Born in Tokyo, Yamanoha’s first solo record, Kazega Fuitara Sayonara (Good Bye When The Wind Blows), was released in late 2014 via Kevin Shield (My Bloody Valentine) and Charlotte Marionneau (Le Volume Courbe)’s Pickpocket Records in collaboration with Honest Jon’s.
This was followed up with his debut album Hazy Eyes Maybe, which was released by ATP Recordings in 2015, and tracks from the album were used as the soundtrack for the Aaron Brookner / Jim Jarmusch directed documentary film Uncle Howard featuring William Burroughs. His sophomore album, Cliffhanger, was released in June 2018 via Some Other Planet Records.
The new album Ginormous has been mixed and co-produced by MPG Award-winning Italian producer Marta Salogni who recently worked with esteemed artist Bjork .
Dreamy yet harsh, the album contains extremely intimate, emotional, cosmic, and occult elements with semi-conscious power pop catchiness.
