Kumiko are a dream-pop/art-rock four piece from Leeds.

‘Thoughtful, confident and VERY special…This is a 5 track love letter to your ears that gorgeously combines elements of jazz, indie-slackness and beautifully imagined instrumentation with thoughtful lyrics and fantastic female vocals…There’s a lush pace to all this that’s really free too…One’s to watch and I expect big things..Recommended!’ – Jumbo Records on ‘Speak/Easy’

‘Off beat drums combined with angelic vocals. This band won’t be playing small venues for long.’ – Hidden and Unplugged

‘Topsy turvey guitars, dreamy vocals. Dynamic power and control with maybe a hint of Lætitia Sadier’ – Pleasure Grounds

‘Dreamy alt-rock inspired by the likes of Radiohead and St Vincent.’ – Strange Parade

‘Chic and moody Jazzy Trip-hop.’ – Cloth Cat

‘Sublime and classy alternative jazzy trip hop is the best way I can describe them.’ – Mike Jolly

“The quartet, led by the beautiful vocals of Francesca Pidgeon, sprinkle jazz in to their alternative guitar sounds to make for a timid but captivating sound. There are very few bands that capture what Kumiko do and with another release anticipated in the next few months, it’s about time you got familiar with the band.” – Drowned In Sound

‘Kumiko are a wicked Art Rock / Dream Pop band, they are so worth seeing.’ – Sifaka

‘Warm and dreamy alt-rock songs, rounding up a perfectly mellow start to the evening.’ – The Gryphon

‘Each track seems to comprise of jazz, funk and indie backing the impressive and attention grabbing vocals. Creatively this is a project brimming with intelligent composition, both in the instrumentation and the clever, interesting, lyrics.’ – Counterfeit Magazine
