Neumes is a new project which brings together 3 long-standing members of London’s alternative/experimental music scenes: Koichi Yamanoha (Grimm Grimm – electronics), Monchan Monna (Bo Ningen – drums) and Dee Sada (An Experiment On A Bird In The Air Pump – vocals, piano and guitar).
Playing their first ever live show at Cafe OTO in London in April 2019, NEUMES have recently recorded at 4AD’s in-house studio with engineers Fabian Prynn (4AD/Ex:Re) and Jonas Verwijnen (Kaiku Studios). According to the press release, their songs explore a wide range of themes such as belongingness, the notion of self-identity in current political climes and fractured relationships.
