Yoshi Flower makes his return with the original track “Faking Sleep” along with a B-side cover of The Cure’s “Boys Don’t Cry” via Rock Mafia/Interscope Records.
In “Faking Sleep,” he addresses how he’s navigating his mental health in the current climate of the world. “It’s about reconciling this past year and trying to fall asleep every night with this gas leak of global context seeping into our everyday lives,” he explains. “You just have to go on with things and be optimistic where you can while being a good person.”
In the video directed by Josh Flores, the visual narrative unfolds, we see the hybrid artist in an ethereal dream-like state whilst singing over layered instrumentals and trap-like beats. Yoshi showcases both his soothing vocals and intricate lyrics that create a moment around life’s harsh realities.
His first track since 2019, the Detroit rocker amassed a following after sharing a slew of singles and three projects. Yoshi also played countless amount of shows including headlining dates, opening spots for artists such as Dua Lipa, Elohim, and Epik High, and performed at major festivals including SXSW, Lollapalooza, and Made in America.
