Yoshi Flower

In June, the naturally genre-blending artist released his latest mixtape, Peer Pleasure, which was described by Rolling Stone as the “perfect album” for a “smooth summer soundtrack.” The nine-track tape explores various topics such as, validation, love and envy, amongst others. Earlier this month, V MAN premiered the “glittering” video for “Empty.” Despite the glitz and glam, bathing in diamonds, and living an extraordinarily wealthy lifestyle, the track continues to explore
another feeling of his, what’s money without love? Yoshi is set to hit
the stage at Lollapalooza today and will be joining Omar Apollo tonight
at Lolla Aftershow. 

Peer Pleasure combines a variety of instrumentation styles, from moody
beats to folky strings, with his sincerely pop-rock affectation and
gloomy words. The tape ends up being a soundtrack to the most chaotic
teen dramedy to have ever been made. It lands squarely between
temperaments, allowing for a listening experience that’s just as
genuine as his previous release, American Raver.” – PAPER

Yoshi Flower releases New Song and Video

Yoshi Flower comes back with the latest track “Validation”, out now on Rock Mafia/Interscope Records. Earlier this year Paper Magazine named Yoshi Flower as one of their 100 names worth getting to know in advance. Check out the video shot in Southern California, HERE

The up-tempo, electronic/trap tune begins with Yoshi delicately singing “you’re so beautiful to me, can’t you see,” however, the song is not as sweet as his voice sounds. His lyrics debate the constant feeling we seek out more than ever in the era of social media – “validation.” Although the internet allows us to easily connect with others and access endless information, the dark side can be unsettling. Yoshi goes on to sing “I just spent a ticket on these new dress clothes, you’re not impressed though…just searching for validation…” The nostalgic visual, directed by Alex McDonnell, serves as a metaphor for how everything comes full circle. We’re all on a constant ride of wanting acceptance from one another. Yoshi ends the track the way he began, singing, “but you don’t need no validation. Baby ‘cause, you’re so beautiful to me, can’t you see.”

Last year Yoshi Flower signed to Interscope Records, released his debut mixtape titled, American Raver, toured with blackbear, Elohim, SG Lewis and opened for Dua Lipa. This year, he played his first 5-city headline tour, a string of showcases at SXSW and just last week, wrapped up a sold-out tour opening for K-Rap group, Epik High. Additionally, he released “Dirty Water,” which premiered on HYPEBEAST and led to L’Officiel calling the track a “demonstrative of Flower’s ability to transcend multiple genres of music, as he continues to elevate his eclectic sound by blending hip hop with electronic-pop, creating music that is not only of the moment but is uniquely his.” Yoshi continues to work on new music and is set to play Lollapalooza in August.
