VIDEO PREMIERE: Tashaki Miyaki- “Anyone But You”
Tashaki Miyaki is the mysterious haze-pop Los Angeles trio, Paige Stark, Luke Paquin and Alexandra Rae Augusta Denton. The band offers a nice ode to the yesteryear of music when songs were planted then grew inside you. Their tunes are easy to listen to, akin to the feeling of interlocking fingers with a lover on a wind-swept Los Angeles night. The band’s sound is rooted in a love of film which is evident while their sweet breeze of melodies swirl in the ear transporting you to a love story of your very own.
In “Anyone But You” we get a taste of their soundtrack prowess with a cinematic fete directed by the photographer/director Janell Shirtcliff‘s west coast dusk tinted lens. The video takes us on winding California canyons, wind in your hair and a heartbreakingly accurate description of what it’s like to be young, yearning, beautiful and free. We chat with Paige about the bands process, kismet energy and the words she has for Neil Young.
Tashaki Miyaki ‘s The Dream is out now via Metropolis Records.
Who does “Anyone But You” make you think of right now?
The President. But in the literal sense. Anyone but you D.T. Anyone. I’d rather have anyone but you be president. Well maybe almost anyone because Pence seems just as bad. It makes my head spin.
