urika's bedroom

urika’s bedroom hides in plain site; focused and alive. You hear the noise and hiss; cracking through the digital heat. “It’s not quiet here, but at least there is understanding”, urika adds.

After years of touring as a multi-instrumentalist (2070, St. Panther, Youth Lagoon) and producing for artists like LA outfit untitled (halo), Los Angeles transplant urika’s bedroom returns to his personal practice with debut single “Junkie”. The self-produced track was mixed by Sonny DiPerri (DIIV, Animal Collective, Portugal. The Man), and sees distorted drums and static soaked guitars meet stung and whispered vocals. A birdsong or a siren speaking sweetly through a wall of chaos, urika offers a clear and welcome respite from the noise of a shifting reality.

The new track comes alongside a music video directed by urika’s bedroom & Jack Dione which simultaneously reveals their aesthetic – one less enamored with glorifying the mundane than with warping it, aggregating a rich, hyperreal landscape in which “Junkie” seamlessly cohabits. This mesmerizing blend of digitized realism sees provocation and raw emotion take precedence over the fashion-forward; inviting audiences into a thought-provoking and intimate artistic space.

Though urika’s practice has extended to creative direction, modeling, and styling; music remains his sanctuary. urika cites the glitched-out guitar driven songs of Ecco2k's and off-kilter genius of Alex G's songwriting as vital entities in shaping his sonic identity, as well as finding creative kinship with forward-thinking artists like Yves Tumor, Oneohtrix Point Never, and Arca.

Beginning with “Junkie”, urika’s bedroom unveils his latest trust fall – inviting audiences to bear witness to his living, breathing feedback loop as he channels his truths, experiences, and the beauty and complexity of life into sonic alchemy.
