One of my favorite local L.A. bands from back in the day was a band called The Dining Dead. The band's front woman Marina Sakimoto created relatable indie pop music with a tinge of 90's era grunge that often reminded me of what I listened to when I was a kid. With her new project Shunkan, Sakimoto has taken her fresh spin to indie pop to another level. Around a year ago Shunkan released a full length album titled "The Pink Noise" which according to Sakimoto reflects the transitions to adulthood and the prospects of traveling to different parts of the world from L.A.:
"The Pink Noise is my transition between the mindset of being a teenager into adulthood, as well as the transition between moving from Los Angeles to New Zealand, so it'll always be something delicate and special for me."
