  • Tamiko – Belgia / Lære bort

    Tamiko is the musical moniker of Simon Yri Cools from Oslo, Norway. The single «Belgia / Lære bort» is his first official release following a few previous tracks on Metronomicon Audio.

    Simon is a music lover first and foremost. Ever since listening to 80’s artists through the door of his brother’s bedroom he has been fascinated by music’s mystical ability to touch people. When he next got hold of some tapes with the same artists for his own cassette player the future seemed to be paved.

    Simon lives in the basement of a villa in Oslo, where he also makes the music of Tamiko. With the help of a few good friends this music results in songs like these two.
