Tashaki Miyaki releasing debut LP, share “Girls on TV”
It's taken five years but LA dreampop act Tashaki Miyaki are finally set to release their debut album, titled The Dream, via Metropolis Records on April 7. Singer Paige Stark produced the record, which was mixed by Dan Horne (Allah-Las, Cass McCombs) and features contributions from Jon Brion and string arrangements by Nate Walcott (Bright Eyes). Preorders are available now.
The first single is Stones-in-slo-mo "Girls on TV" which takes direct aim at today's instrant-grat culture. "Things like the emergence of reality TV stardom and social media celebrity have elevated fame culture to a new sphere," says Stark. "We are living in Andy Warhol meets Orwellian vision of the future and I find it terrifying. The title is playing on the perspective I'm singing from a media brainwashed girl that only wants to be famous like the girls on TV." Listen, and check out LP artwork and tracklist, below.
