6 Songs, 16 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

With In Tongues, viral-video personality George "Joji" Miller merges into a new lane as an unsung hero of downcast R&B. With help from the 88 Rising crew, Joji inhabits a rarefied space somewhere between Majid Jordan and D’Angelo. Save a touch of self-deprecating humor on “Bitter Fuck,” Joji paints with a sublime touch on these six songs, creating after-hours soliloquies that gather appreciative head bobs.

About Joji

Japanese-Australian comedian and musician George Miller -- who built an audience on the internet as Filthy Frank and the Lycra-wearing "Harlem Shake"-ing Pink Guy -- is also a serious artist crafting downtempo, moody reflections under the Joji moniker on efforts like In Tongues. He made his debut in 2011 with the absurdist online comedy series The Filthy Frank Show, which garnered Miller over four million followers and pop culture renown with his viral "Harlem Shake" dance. He rode his ensuing popularity by releasing an album of popular vignettes, the self-titled Pink Guy, in 2014. With a built-in fan base, Pink Guy's 2016 release, Pink Season, topped download charts and climbed to number 76 on the Billboard 200. In addition to trap rap-influenced tracks, the album also featured downtempo electronic textures reflecting his non-comedic songwriting as Joji. He would spin that trip-hop-inspired songcraft into a full exercise on 2017's In Tongues, a six-song EP of introspective musings and piano-based electronic explorations similar to tracks by Jinsang and eevee. ~ Neil Z.
