Memory Foam - MNZ Interview: The Distorted Transmission 068: Memory Foam

19 Jun 2022 // An interview by Will Stairmand




Memory Foam is a Kiwi Punk band with a difference - Japanese born vocalist Yuko Miyoshi uses bilingual lyrics to bring something a little different than you might expect. You can see them at Punk It Up V at the Powerstation 1st and 2nd July 2022.

 

About Memory Foam

Once described by Under The Radar as a "non-stop barrage of catchy hooks and face melting psych guitar solos", Tamaki Makaurau's guitar/synth post-punk outfit Memory Foam is made up of Yuko Miyoshi, Samuel Moore, Samantha Webb, Sinisha Milkovic and Guy Innes.

Founded in 2019 by Auckland DIY stalwart Samuel Moore, Memory Foam have been gaining momentum ever since, serving up intense performances alongside acts Die! Die! Die!, Upper Hutt Posse, Wax Chattels and more, and releasing their debut LP, Steel Magnolias, early June 2022.

The 9-track LP, co-produced by Mike Logie (The Mint Chicks) is packed with Yuko Miyoshi's schizophrenic, absurdist lyricism, that plays as sparring partner to Sam Moore's mind-bending guitar lines, creating a high-impact, blisteringly cerebral attack of a record.
