New Optimism (Miho Hatori)

(Cibo Matto, New Optimism – JP/USA)

Co-founder of celebrated poly pop duo Cibo Matto and collaborative partner of influential acts as Gorillaz and The Beastie Boys, Miho Hatori is a rare and inimitable talent from New York City. As prolific and creative as ever, she released her ‘New Optimism’ EP last year; a strange and wonderful collage of Hatori’s eclectic pop sound, grooving bass lines, twisted hip-hop and strains of Caribbean/Brasilo-beat.
