Floating Room’s New EP “Shima” 11/12 Release

Floating Room’s “Shima” (Famous Class Records)

It’s probably our most anticipated release of 2021 and now we have everything we’ve been waiting for — well almost everything as 11/12 is the release date. We have the awesome album art, we have the amazing lead single “Shimanchu”, and we have a super fun music video (created by Floating Room’s Maya Stoner).

Floating Room’s MV for “Shimanchu”

We’ve had “Shimanchu” on heavy rotation since its release and it’s a banger. This part in the song especially hits close to home for many of us:

I’m an islander but I’m away from my island, so I am the only island here.

There was a really cute Twitter exchange between Floating Room (@floating_room) and artist Nami Oshiro (@namioshiro) where Maya replied “makes me feel way less of an island”. It shows that although we’re (Uchinanchu) spread out all over the world and away from our island, the connections we make with each other lets us know that we’re not alone and not the only island here.

Pre-order “Shima” on Bandcamp and add it to your Apple Music library.
