Approved: Kudo Kamome

Kudo Kamome

Kudo Kamome has been making music using a variety of sounds – from traditional Japanese instruments to Game Boys – since 2009. For her latest release, ‘Trypophobia Experiments’, she’s worked with other producers for the first time.

Hamacide, Downstate and Outer Order all lend their own influence to her songs, taking her in new directions and filling out the rougher corners of her older work.

Opening track ‘Middle Of The End’ instantly draws you into this newer part of her world. On the song, Hamacide’s deft backing brings out a gentleness in Kamome’s voice that immediately transports you away.

The EP closes with a new self-produced track which builds on the contributions of her collaborators, but also works against them with layers of rough-edged guitars and distorted vocals.
