Golin is a Japanese-American artist, singer, producer, classically trained pianist and performance artist born in Tagawa, Japan. Her songs create J-pop hallucinations filled with emotional punch and zeitgeist club urgency . An alumni of California Institute of the Arts, her live performances carry a strong and visceral focus on the possibilities of the body, powered by a spontaneity that turns her shows into perpetually surprising cinematic experiences.
While many might have first heard her as Rin, featuring on Ziúr’s track “Lilith”, Golin released her entirely self-produced debut EP ‘Momo’ in 2017 on 12” vinyl through Belgian label Midlife Music. A collaborative effort with producer Buga called ‘Fushigi’ quickly followed the next year, courtesy of Shanghai’s Genome 6.66 Mbp label. Following a two-year residency at Brussels’ favorite cultural house Beursschouwburg and a year as part of the European SHAPE network’s platform, Golin is set to release a new EP in the latter half of 2019.
