Shishido Kavka

The tenth annual Tokyo International Music Market (or TIMM) takes place in, you guessed it, Tokyo this week. Kicking off tomorrow and running until Thursday, it invites members of the international music industry to meet key figures in the Japanese independent music business and check out some of the bands they represent. You probably guessed that from the name, but I didn’t like to assume.

The big showcase night takes place on Wednesday at the Zepp DiverCity venue with seventeen acts performing in total. Lucky enough to be there myself, it’s Shishido Kavka I’m most looking forward to seeing perform.

Singer and drummer Kavka released her debut album, ‘Kavkanize’, in Japan last month. Amongst the sixteen tracks that make up its tracklist is ‘Love Corrida’, a inescapably infectious pop track with a hook that gets inside you so deeply you suspect it’ll be there forever.

Check out ‘Love Corrida’ and it’s excellent video here:
