Tashaki Miyaki – Reveal a Teaser Song, and the Meaning Behind It

Tashaki Miyaki, an LA based dream poop/shoegaze duo, have released another teaser song from their long-awaited debut album, ‘The Dream’. The album is set to be released next week,

‘Out of My Head’, their new single, has premiered via Noisey/Vice, who described the single as “a testament to the group’s cinematic influences, a lilting piece of orchestral pop about confront anxieties that also assuages them.”

The band’s Paige Stark states that “it is a song about wanting to shut off my mind. I suffer from various anxieties and depression that can become exhausting. As John Milton says in ‘Paradise Lost’, ‘The Mind is its own place and in itself, can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.’ Musically I wanted it to feel the opposite, soothing and expansive… like a daydream.”

In six years, Tashaki Miyaki, have released 3 singles and an EP on UK labels including, Luv Luv Luv, For Us Records and The Sounds of Sweet Nothing, as well as a single on their own label, Blonde Dog. Influential local label Burger Records also put out a collection o the bands early recordings. These released received praised in Mojo, NME, The New York Times, Pitchfork and more.

The duo have toured and played festivals across North America, the Uk and mainland Europe. They have also performed at art museums around the world, including The Centre de Cultura Contemporania de Barcelona and MoMA, New York.
