What can top our favorite Japanese snack and all the stars, asteroids and planets combined? Space Onigiri, that’s what. The rice ball band paints the city with their shoegaze, dream-pop and ambient music! PLUS, they just released their EP ‘OK’ with tracks called Elude, Melancholy and Sad Song. The song titles may seem like a disclaimer of despair, but the members, as friends, are actually quite a handful (in a good way, of course.) The EP can be found on Soundcloud for now, but they’re planning to release physical copies soon! You can also check out their first ever music video for Elude directed by April Torreja that was released a few months ago.
With upbeat chords to make up for the sad lyrics, watch Space Onigiri perform “Melancholy” live on Locals Only!
