about

“Jyomon Doki Doki” is the second single to be lifted from the upcoming ‘Boiled Moon’ album by Bristol-based psych/art-rock outfit Yama Warashi. This follows the folkloric and fanciful “Kofun No Uta” single (out now), which introduced the record with early support on the likes of Stuart Maconie’s Freak Zone(BBC 6Music), Late Junction (BBC R3), BBC Introducing, and in features on BBC World Service and BBC R4.

Yama Warashi is the project of Yoshino Shigihara, a Japanese musician and visual artist whose past endeavours include cult favourites Zun Zun Egui (Bella Union), of which she was a co-founder. Inspired by Japanese folk dance, free jazz and tribal African music, and heavily saturated in psychedelia, Yama Warashi’s songs are lyrically outlandish and charming, melodically addictive and mythical; the band name translates from Shigihara’s native tongue as “small childlike mountain spirit”.

“Jyomon Doki is a pottery made in the Jyomon period, but “doki doki” in Japanese is an onomatopoeic phrase for the sound of a heart beating at a quickened pace”, Shigihara explains.“It is used to refer to moments when attractive people stand very close to you, moments of nervousness, excitement, near misses, etc... I was thinking, if these clay figures from different periods of ancient times meet, might they make friends? Fall in love? Would they have parties or rituals together? The title, and closing lyric, comes from the Haniwa's point of view, meeting clay figures from a different period (Jyomon) and their hearts are pounding (Doki Doki).”
