Grimm Grimm, the alias of former Screaming Tea Party member Koichi Yamanoha, has delivered the world a new song, complete with video, entitled 'Hazy Eyes Maybe'. The song is also the title track of Grimm Grimm’s upcoming debut album, which is out on the 29th of June.
Musically, the track is a delicate affair with a simple acoustic guitar that sounds almost like a lute. Yamanoha quietly sings a lullaby like melody over the guitar with a healthy dose of reverb to clearly separate and suspend his voice from the guitar. The song reminds me of a slightly more melodic Syd Barrett in his solo era.
The accompanying video consists of various scenes including a fish appearing to sing, Yamanoha himself singing into a tin-foil covered microphone with a pair of goggles on and cutaways of kaleidoscopic footage of amp dials and more fish amongst other things.
