Product Notes

Parade is the debut full-length release by Miko, a new female artist hailing from Yokohama, outside Tokyo. The album was created like a watercolor painting, layering pale yet colorful inks delicately on rough sketches using instruments from her daily life, such as electric and acoustic guitars, piano, synthesizers and samplers. In addition, this crafty multi-instrumentalist did all the vocals and mixing herself. Parade is full of diverse moments, but terms such as dreamy, catchy, sad and comfortable most simply describe her sounds. Humming, pure vocals bring you an indefinable sadness, melancholic and floating tracks are inspired by My Bloody Valentine, guitars weep like lo-fi bands and the overwhelmingly beautiful melodies take you to the deep horizon. She entitled her record Parade from her will to make an album that sounds like "there's a fun parade going on over there." Parade is a sensitive and gentle imaginary soundscape.
