Tashaki Miyaki are a duo consisting of Lucy on drums and vocals and Rocky on guitar. Based in Los Angeles, they formed out of a late night jam session, and here Lucy gives some insight into the band that goes by the name Tashaki Miyaki.


1. What inspired you to form a band?
I had been making demos on my own and was really wanting to play with other people and hear that sound. At the time I didn't really have a plan to form a band...I didn't know what the outcome would be. I was making recordings with my friend Joel Jerome and then Rocky came one day and we basically recorded our first EP in a day. We did drums, guitar, and vocals live in a couple takes and then overdubbed percussion and more vocals. The band was pretty much born in those sessions. After our first trip to the UK in 2011, which was essentially our first tour/shows, we realized we needed a third person to fill out the sound. Dora was someone I had played in bands with in the past and who I really trust musicall…
