POSTPONED DUE TO ILLNESS INFORMATION FORTHCOMING Haruna Kimishima, known by her stage name HARU NEMURI, is a Japanese singer, songwriter, and “poetry rapper”. Her musical style mixes influences from J-pop, rap, post-hardcore, experimental pop, art rock, and electronica. She is currently based in Tokyo.
Anthony Fantano of the The Needle Drop reviewed her debut album “Haru to Shura”, mentioning that “Haru Nemuri’s debut album pushes J-pop/rap in an exciting direction by channeling Japan’s rich history of underground rock music.”
HARU NEMURI’s album Shunka Ryougen had been hailed by Pitchfork (“Blending elements of J-pop, rap, and hardcore, the experimental Japanese artist’s latest album presents a convincing balance of nihilism and hope. and also from The Fader, Spectrum Culture (“Nemuri looked to the balance of life and death and represents their intersection. That’s why the album is as celebratory as it is volcanic),Stereogum (“We named genre-exploding Japanese musician Haru Nemuri, who mixes pop, rock, and hip-hop into her own beautifully experimental cocktail, one of the best new artists of 2018.”), and Ones to Watch (“Treasure. We are constantly looking for it and by its very nature it remains elusive….everything about Haru Nemuri is comfortably atypical.”). SPIN stated “Rather than merely recreate her debut, Haru Nemuri chose deconstruction for her second album. The word appears throughout Shunka Ryougen’s song titles, and it’s key to how the record reconfigures Nemuri’s blend of art rock, noise pop, and hip-hop”
NORRISETTE is a hyperpop / artpop artist who makes music and videos in her tiny flat in Manchester. Her first live gig was at Deaf Institute supporting Sylvette on the 23rd September 2021. Just ten months later, she performed a solo set on the Nebula Stage at Bluedot Festival under the gaze of the Jodrell Bank radio telescope, which she accidentally cosplayed as.
Together with Industries Norrisette set up FLUFF, a regular night for queer electronic music producers at Fuel, Withington. FLUFF has hosted the debut sets of many artists, has promoted at Sounds from the Other City Festival, and been mentioned in the Guardian for its role in the underground music scene in Manchester.
