BAND CRUSH: TASHAKI MIYAKI
fall into a bad romance with this dark california duo.
L.A. boy-girl pair Tashaki Miyaki first caught the attention of record label The Sound of Sweet Nothing (also home to other favorites like Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Gross Magic) for their haunting cover of the Everly Brothers' classic track "All I Have to Do is Dream." Now they're being touted as the female Jesus and Mary Chain thanks to dreamy songs like "Somethin' is Better Than Nothin,'" and we're not about to argue.
With molasses-thick vocals blanketed in reverberating guitar riffs, this lo-fi gem is the ultimate winter anthem... California girl or not. You can buy their new EP here, but first, check out the Juan Iglesias-directed video for the single below.
