Experience the Melodic Psychedelic Noise YUKO ARAKI “Lost Race”

Shoko Yoshida

Is it possible for noise to be harsh yet harmonious? Can it be scathing but symphonic? Yes, because all of those dichotomous descriptors apply to the noise, post-industrial techno, and experimental electronics that YUKO ARAKI makes. With her approach, a genre that’s easily one of the most challenging to listen to becomes a siren song that has my whole body moving. I’m not saying she softens it; her songs are still rife with tension and still have that Brillo effect on my eardrums. But the way she layers each grating sound pulls them together into something melodic. Today I’m excited to share her video for “Lost Race” with you, a single off her upcoming album End Of Trilogy that comes out April 2nd via Room40 – you can pre-order it right here. Right now, let this gorgeous noise penetrate your consciousness…
