Erin, the singer and trumpeter with the Jazz band Mr. Elephants will finally release a solo album under the name “ermhoi”.  Earlier in the year, showcasing Erin’s vocal sense, the band held a sell-out concert at the Ropppongi live house Super Deluxe – a venue described by Time magazine as being “the best place to enjoy avant-garde music in Asia”.  In this album she has searched deep inside herself, and found her individuality through the fusion of indie rock, electronica, jazz and ambient music.  In fact, all the music that has been familiar to her since her childhood in Japan, where she was born and raised by her Japanese father and Irish mother.
Her voice echoes an innocence and an artistic sense, reminding one of Bjork or Joanna Newsom. The reliable song-writing skills, honed from her Jazz background, support and elevate this album.  “Why” a song that showed us the sublime collaboration with her music and video achieved 3,500 immediate hits when it appeared on Youtube.  “Second Thought” is infused with a northern ambiance.  The tight rap of “I’ll Never” manages to be both piquant and cute at the same time.  “Deets” slowly creeps up on you and surprises you with it’s melody and tempo.  Her songs prove her intense talent and originality, attracting people from every genre.  The diversity of music that “ermhoi” has absorbed so far, sparkles on this album and she delivers her songs in a sweet and often fearless way.
The Tokyo based Web magazine “Sign Magazine” has described her as “More active than Julia Holter, lighter than Laurel Halo and more idyllic and dreamy than FKA twigs”.  This is an album about a happy encounter of true talent and an experimental spirit that easily crosses the borders of genre.
