The lush, colorful music created by London-based duo Bamboo is influenced by Japan and Korean folk tales aswell as art-pop visionaries such as for example Kate Bush and Yellow Magic Orchestra. The task was founded in 2014 by vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Rachel Norwood (Garbage Package, Halo Halo) and manufacturer Nick Carlisle (Peepholes, Don’t Argue, the Feline Wish). Mixing swirling digital textures with banjos, marimbas, and Norwood’s otherworldly vocals, Bamboo’s debut record, Prince Pansori Priestess, premiered by Annoyed! The Tempo in 2015. The full-length included a cover of “Sangokushi Like Theme,” compiled by YMO’s Haruomi Hosono. Pursuing 2016 EP Live at Café OTO (that was included on the Compact disc problem of Prince Pansori Priestess), Bamboo’s even more uptempo second full-length, The Dragon Flies Apart, premiered on cassette by Crumb Cabin. The record was presented with a wider discharge by Upset! The Tempo the following calendar year.
