YOSHI FLOWER Interview- Elohim’s best friend, signing to Interscope with no music out
Combining his interests in electronic dance music, hip-hop, and indie rock, Yoshi Flower is the project of Josh Smith, a Los Angeles-based musician formerly of Detroit duo Gosh Pith. He made his debut as Yoshi Flower in early March of 2018 with “Movies,” an electro-pop love song that imagines his love interest as the star of his film.
The same week, Los Angeles’ Elohim released the song “Panic Attacks” featuring Yoshi Flower, and Yoshi Flower kicked off a string of dates in support of Elohim’s North American tour. Before the end of the month, Smith released his follow-up solo single, “Just on Drugs.” Another single, “Woke,” and the maxi-single “Brown Paper Bag” both led up to the October release of his debut mixtape, American Raver.
