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, emotional, 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 and Charlotte Marionneau’s Pickpocket Records in collaboration with Honest Jon's. This was followed up with his debut album, “Hazy Eyes Maybe”, was released by ATP Recordings in 2015 and tracks from the album were used as 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 and 7” single remixed by Klein was released via Kosher Hino’s Osaka-based label, birdFriend in June 2019.
Marta Salogni-mixed album “Ginormous” will be released on 28th February 2020 via TipTop Recordings.
