White Elephant Orchestra – Electric Dreams of Tokyo
My new single, “Electric Dreams of Tokyo,” featured on my forthcoming album, Debut, is my fan letter to Japanese painter Yayoi Kusama.
I wanted it to be upbeat because I think she has taken her mental health struggle and turned it around to the most positive benefit ever; being able to heal herself through her art.
This inspired the lyric:
“You flipped the charge
So you could march To the sound of your own drum.”
I self produced the song, handling the writing, and engineering by myself. When I began producing “Electric Dreams of Tokyo,” I thought that I would pass it onto someone else, but at a certain point I realized that no one else could produce this but me.
