Joakim ‘Samurai’

20/03/2017

Joakim unveils his 6th album Samurai on the Tigersushi and Because labels. Inspired by a range of influences from the literary (Mishima’s Hagakure’s Samurai Ethics & Modern Japan) to the sonic (home-made electronics and new age music) and the circumstantial (Japan and New York), Samurai is a mixture of pop songs (‘Samurai’, ‘Numb’, ‘Exile’) and instrumental set pieces (‘In the Beginning’, Hope/Patience) that describe a sonic neo-noir landscape.
