YAMA WARASHI Releases ‘Parallelogram’

‘Parallelogram’ is the next single to be taken from Bristol-based psych/art-rock outfit Yama Warashi’s celebrated second album, Boiled Moon (out now via Small Pond), and comes with the addition of a brand new remix from Bristol experimental jazz tearaways Ishmael Ensemble.

The Afrobeat-infused ‘Parallelogram’ brings a driving, energetic groove that spirals out into a psychedelic sound-world. The song explores an intense realisation that for anything to happen in this world, forces must act simultaneously; its title referencing the concept of the ‘parallelogram of forces’.

Originally from Ashiya city, near Osaka, lifelong musician and multi-instrumentalist Yoshino Shigihara found herself brimming with inspiration on moving to the UK and settling in Bristol, although her music still draws heavily on Japanese folklore and mythology. As of Spring 2019 she has now moved to London where she is throwing herself into a new creative scene.
