Grimm Grimm is the moniker of London-based, Tokyo-born singer-songwriter Koichi Yamanoha. Since 2013, the project has been an outlet for his fragile, otherworldly forays into baroque folk, futurist lyricism and electroacoustic oddities, culminating in some kind of spacefolk full of intimate confessions - in English and Japanese - and with an honest vulnerability which make his live performances tender and intense. His music brings to mind the frailty of Syd Barrett's later recordings as well as the trippyness of Boards of Canada and the desolate beauty of ruins. Formerly performing as frontman of the cult psychedelic-punk group Screaming Tea Party, Yamanoha also doesn't shy away from space-gazing reverb although he never fully lets go of melodies and pop-like structures.
THE QUIETUS - "Yamanoha tailors the boundaries of genre according his own vision."
HAPPYMAG - "Koichi plays on contrasts, pairing the clarity of an acoustic guitar with hazy vocals and misty synths. True to the description of space folk, Grimm Grimm is the soundtrack of the sky."
