ASOBI SEKSU ON TOUR IN EUROPE & NORTH AMERICA / MP3

as_white_promo_03-weblowres_phixr.jpgAsobi Seksu announce US 2009 spring tour and release debut single “Familiar Light” from upcoming latest and greatest LP ‘Hush’ Out Feb 17th on Polyvinyl Records.

While Asobi Seksu’s creative core explored music at an early age (lead vocalist/keyboardist Yuki Chikudate got standing ovations at child prodigy recitals when she was just 8; guitarist/vocalist James Hanna bounced between sludgy hardcore and Mogwai-schooled post-rock in his teens), their potential ‘career’ wasn’t put into perspective until a stint at the Manhattan School of Music. And by put into perspective, we mean finding out what they didn’t want to do.
