Detroit to LA transplant Yoshi Flower is back with a new single named Woke, and it’s a splendorous effusion of the gifted artist’s genre-bending music. He first dashed on to the scene two months ago with Movies before featuring on Elohim’s Panic Attacks. I don’t usually watch live streams of festivals, but I just had to tune into Elohim’s set at Coachella, not only because we’re eternally in love with that amazing human, but because we’re such huge fans of Yoshi Flower too. It was a thrill to see the LA roommates tear up the stage with their song together. On new song Woke, Yoshi Flower expertly blends alt rock, hip hop, and trappy electronica to give us a truly enlightening song. He takes broiling guitars reminiscent of Opia and the sooty allure of The Neighbourhood then gives that concoction his own hazy smoldering twist. Yoshi recently finished working on his debut album, which we can’t wait to find out more about. He’s also hit the road with chillwave extraordinaire Washed Out for five West Coast dates culminating in shows in LA on May 30th and NYC on June 6th. Woke will be streaming on all major services come this Friday, May 18th. Re-visit our prior Yoshi Flower features, here.
