    Dalston, London, E8 3DL

    Saya, vocalist and primary songwriter for Japan's Tenniscoats touches down in London for a rare solo spot to open Dalston's latest live performance space CAFE OTO with a set of inspired psychedelic avant-pop.

    Tenniscoats celebrate all that makes song vital in our collective consciousness, matching emotive live performance against delicately psychedelic folk songs.

    Saya is one of the key figures in the tokyo underground pop scene, a catalyst and collaborator, organising shows and giving opportunities to younger musicians on the scene, whilst spreading her own wings with far-flung collaborations. Two are due later this year with The Pastels (on Geographic/Domino) and Deerhoof's Satomi as OneOne - the name a sweet pun on the japanese onomatopoeia for a dog's bark. These follow last year's two stunning records - Totemo Aimasho (trans. 'Lets meet very much' for the Australian ROOM40 label) and Tan-Tan Therapy (for Häpna in Sweden).

    Saya is also a member of Maher Shalal Hash Baz and runs the Majikick label with her partner Takashi Ueno (Tenniscoats' guitarist/saxophonist) from their base in Tokyo's outer suburbs.
