“Grand and transcendent… the layers of beautiful sound, homage to Japanese culture, and use of violin make 151a a dreamy, pocket-sized symphony, perfect for anyone needing a lift.” – BUST

“A triumphant celebration of joyous noise that combines violin, keyboard and vocal chants to build and swell in ways that would make Animal Collective proud.” – CMJ

Kishi Bashi's debut full-length is a bright and soaring avant-pop record written primarily on violin – Kishi Bashi's main instrument which has brought him to record and tour with the likes of Regina Spector, Sondre Lerche, Alexi Murdoch, of Montreal and more.

The first two singles “It All Began With a Burst” and “Bright Whites” have already been getting attention from SPIN, Consequence of Sound and more.

Kishi Bashi uses Japanese singing as another of many layers, doing so without any trace of gimmickry, and achieving what, to Western ears, must sound like an expression of the ineffable.
