From the ashes of three garage rock bands, rose Japanese Television – who formed with a shared vision of creating modern psychedelic space-surf-rock.
The band went into the studio with Kristian Bell of The Wytches who captured the raw spirit of their live performance, recording to 8-track tape. The tracks made up their debut self-titled 2018 EP, which was named as an EP of the year by both Gideon Coe and Amy Lamé on BBC 6 Music, and 2019 EP II named Best 0f 2019 by Marc Riley following their 2019 Riley 6 Music session. Both EPs are released by tastemaker record label Tip Top and the tracks have racked up over 50 plays on BBC 6 Music along with wide critical acclaim from the likes of NME, Clash, So Young, and more.
“Although the band is instrumental, we don’t play solos. It’s more about atmosphere and creating a hypnotic effect. Hypnotism through repetition, reverbs and delays, harps and fuzzboxes. The combination of extensive travelling and our shared love for psychedelic and experimental music has crept into the sound of the EPs” says synth/harpist Ian.
