On his regualrly topped-up Facebook page, Parisian artist Dream Koala describes himself as “Vegan post j-pop”. His music is as otherworldly as Hatsune Miku, but hardly sounds like the CGI phenomenon – the 19-year-old's self-produced tracks take you on a spectral, definitively non-GMO trip. On his debut EP Earth. Home. Destroyed., melodic vocals glide thorugh constellations of rhythmic tippedy-taps, with swashes of ambience like the milkey trail of a comet. “Earth” hails down with rocky hip hop beats, while EP closer, “A Cosmic Landscape”, demands to be used at the Planetarium in Disney’s Epcot. Stream the EP exclusively on Dazed below.
