Emerging multi-genre artist, Yoshi Flower shares his video for “empty.” Shot in Los Angeles, the visual showcases Yoshi living a lavish lifestyle, however the track, which Paper called an “undeniable banger” has a deeper meaning. “empty” premiered this morning on V MAN – watch the video directed by Jamie Whitby.
“The video is commentary on the fact that no amount of riches makes you feel good if your all alone. Love is the answer. Hope is dope” says Yoshi Flower.
Just last month Yoshi released his latest mixtape, Peer Pleasure. It explores various themes including validation, envy, escapism, amongst others. Last year, he released his debut mixtape titled, American Raver, which i-D described as “the pledge of allegiance gone goth,” toured with blackbear, Elohim, SG Lewis and opened for Dua Lipa. This year Yoshi played his first 5-city headline tour, a string of showcases at SXSW and wrapped up a sold-out tour opening for K-Rap group, Epik High. His diverse sound allowed him to collaborate with various artists such as Rico Nasty, Quinn XCII, and Jesse Rutherford. Additionally, he released “Dirty Water,” which premiered on HYPEBEAST and led to L’Officiel calling the track “demonstrative of Flower’s ability to transcend multiple genres of music, as he continues to elevate his eclectic sound by blending hip hop with electronic-pop, creating music that is not only of the moment but is uniquely his.” Yoshi is set to play Lollapalooza on August 2nd.
