Grimm Grimm with visuals by Daisy Dickinson plus Guests

The Castle Hotel
66 Oldham Street
Grimm Grimm is the ever-evolving alter ego of London-based Tokyo-born singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Koichi Yamanoha.
An artist perpetually moving into new spaces, Grimm Grimm matches ethereal shoegaze to spider-like songwriting skeletons, a deeply idiosyncratic and heady, individual brew.
Reminiscent of Syd Barrett's solo recordings reset for a 21st century audience, Grimm Grimm's solo whimsies cast themselves into incredible endearing territory.
New album 'Cliffhanger' will be released on June 22nd, and we're able to share two brand new recordings from the songwriter.
'Still Smiling' hails from the new album, a song brimming with originality with its evocative, endlessly entrancing atmosphere.
'Hybrid Moments' is rather different; a Misfits cover, it points to an often hidden punk influence, and shares a certain directness.
DAISY DICKINSON BIO
Daisy Dickinson is a London-based director/visual artist whose work involves experimental short film, music video, projected installation and live visual performance. She is one half of audio/visual collaboration Adrena Adrena with ex-Boredom’s drummer E-da Kazuhisa and is currently working as a visual addition to 90s post-rock group Seefeel. Dickinson’s visuals have been described as ‘magmatic and sulphurous, cosmological and transcendental, drawing attention to the wonder of the earth and our sensuality on it’.
For Grimm Grimm’s album launch tour, they will be collaborating on a special AV set with new live mixed visual material created specifically for the tour.
