« unusual pop songs of complex simplicity ».(The Inrockuptibles)
HIMIKO is a band created by Himiko Paganotti and Emmanuel Borghi.
Their music exists in a range of aesthetic territories, traveling through pop, electro and jazz, without ever settling in one, inspired by a film, an image, a word, a feeling, spun together to weave an intricate and magical musical universe.
Their « ambitious and bewitching » music is often compared to the « tortured psychedelic soul » of Portishead or the cinematic realm of Tim Burton…Also Kate Bush, Laurie Anderson, Björk, Peter Gabriel, Annie Lennox, Yoko Ono, Nina Hagen, Radiohead, David Bowie, and even Grace Jones are often cited in comparison…
