World's End Girlfriend Finds Seven Idiots

World's End Girlfriend is a Japanese composer whose work blends complex sound structures with beautiful melodies, reaching from electronic glitch to jazz-infused rock to modern classical. Captivating, enthralling and like nothing you’ve heard before, WEG makes for a surprising yet central addition to London contemporary music label Erased Tapes (├ôlafur Arnalds, Peter Broderick, Nils Frahm, Rival Consoles).

World's End Girlfriend hails from Nagasaki Kyushu, Japan and currently resides in Tokyo. Fascinated by his father's classical music collection, he began his foray into sound at the tender age of 10, creating his early compositions on keyboard, guitar, tape recorders and computers. To date he has composed more than 600 songs, for the most part unreleased testaments of his early experimentation.

Brand new album Seven Idiots shifts seamlessly from catchy pop hooks to elaborate orchestrations and brutal IDM drones, it's an irregular pop album to say the least.  Think Bis without vocals on acid and you kind of have an idea where  World's End Girlfriend is coming from!
