Fans of DIY electronica, shoegaze or just dreamy pop in general had best get down to London’s SOAS University tonight. Underground digital duo The Nobis are in town, and the SOAS Student Union and its Japan Society have teamed up to present a free love show for the pair. All the details for the show can be found be clicking here.
According to the Facebook event page the Nobis are “Pioneers of sustainable organic resources, The Nobis’ combination of “ethereal child-like vocals, new wave synths and guitar licks melting in love-beats” earned them the Diesel U:Music seal of approval.
“Emi (Vocals & Synths) and Masakazu (Guitar, FX & Percussion) left Japan 11 days following the post-earthquake nuclear power fallout near their home in Fukushima. With the odds stacked against them, Emi and Masakazu were forced to abandon their home on an organic farm and weekly residencies at clubs around Tokyo. In true fighting spirit, instead of treating this as a grand defeat, they transformed the need to evacuate into opportunity to begin a globe-trotting music tour packed with live gigs, busking and epic accounts of what was really happening to and felt by them and other Japanese people at that time.
The Nobis are currently in their eighth city on a journey that has taken them from Tokyo – New York – Washington DC – Baltimore – Toronto – Montreal – Norwich – Amsterdam – London and soon to be Berlin and locations throughout Spain.”
