London-based musician, Koichi Yamanoha - a former frontman of cult psychedelic-punk group Screaming Tea Party, has branched out on his own under the moniker of Grimm Grimm. Yamanoha's new project is a platform for him to explore new realms of sounds, in his honest and sometimes innocent style, which mixes otherworldly baroque pop and psychedelic folk.
Born in Tokyo, Yamanoha's stirring live performances have captured an essence of Japan and confession alike; a reverb drenched approach to the singer-songwriter format which was perhaps expressed most succinctly on his last release 'Kazega Fuitara Sayonara / Tell The Truth' 7'' single for Kevin Shields' Pickpocket Records late last year.
With the release of the debut Grimm Grimm LP, Hazy Eyes Maybe scheduled for early June of this year on ATP Recordings - as well as festival appearances across Europe; 2015 is set to be a pivotal year for Grimm Grimm as he continues to blur the boundaries of genre according to his own distinct outlook.
