Meishi Smile is an emotive electronic project that derives influence from disparate genres both equally pop and noise.
The word “meishi” is Japanese for a “business card.” Combined with the word “smile,” the name is set to evoke a falsifying of one’s own emotions through the “transactions” of everyday life. The project ultimately aims to explore the struggles & nuance of identity under the weight of romance, pop culture, and modern society. .
In 2014, Meishi Smile released their 1st full-length album "LUST" on ZOOM LENS. With its maximal, yet bleak atmospheres, heavily processed vocals and lyrical content detailing isolation & the digital self, the albums outlook into the net-pop underground met critical acclaim with publications such as The Fader, Gorilla vs. Bear, Nest HQ and Tiny Mix Tapes. The single "AJS" was broadcast on national TV through Adult Swim.
The 2nd album "...Belong" was released in 2015 to equal acclaim, drawing influences from '80s synthpop, power electronics and ambient music. "...Belong" focused on a more human narrative, vocoder vocals now replaced by auto-tune and tinges of distortion and lyrics highlighting concepts about a larger struggle of acceptance, loss and societal violence, with Pitchfork noting it's "painful" approach to pop music.
Meishi Smile is currently working on their 3rd album.
