"Menace and mystery surround this female Jesus and Mary Chain, whose vocals cut like honey-coated razor blades" - The Guardian
"Tashaki Miyaki has a sound to them that is both very old and new at the same time, with a haunting beauty that fascinates me. Listening to their music brings to mind something of a mix of David Lynch and the Cowboy Junkies, but not because of a comparable look or style, but because of the emotional resonance of their unique sound." - CBS News
"...so pretty I'm afraid saying anything else might diminish it." - FADER
" [Tashaki Miyaki] are being touted as the female Jesus and Mary Chain thanks to dreamy songs like "Somethin' is Better Than Nothin,'" and we're not about to argue." - NYLON magazine
" It has that heavy, heavy, sullen feeling at the start.. and once the sullen vocals kick in I'm totally won over, every single time." - NME
Winter is Samira Winter, Nolan Eley, Kyle Oppenheimer and Ana Karina DaCosta. The dream pop/shoegaze band started in Boston, MA with the initial collaboration between Samira Winter and Nolan Eley working on their first EP "Daydreaming," released last December. Now the full band is living in L.A., playing shows, working on new songs and always daydreaming.
The new LA line up consists of Samira Winter (Vocals/Guitar), Sam Glassberg (Lead Guitar), Joe Holcomb (Bass) and Jake Rokke (Drums) as well as Nolan Eley (producer).
"The Tyde's journey began back in the early 90s when Darren Rademarker and brother Brent fronted Further, the legendary L.A. indieoutfit in which they first began mixing twisted, Beach Boys and Jan & Dean-influenced, suburban California harmonies with Jesus and Mary Chain and Teenage Fanclub-influenced guitar pop chaos. Recent L.A. music history cannot ignore the impact of that single band's influence, which ignited a forest fire of notable bands to follow – Beachwood Sparks, All Night Radio, Frausdots, and, of course, The Tyde – connected through common membership, brotherhood, and a shared musical vision. Dare we say their combined creative output has been unmatched since the halcyon days of late 60s L.A.?" --Last.fm
