UQiYO's new album "loom" will be released on March 26th.

UQiYO has been active since 2010 as a music project that "brings the everyday into the extraordinary - the floating world.
UQiYO has been active since 2010, and has released four albums and other works.
They have released four albums and performed at many festivals and live shows in Japan and abroad.

The year 2020 marks the 10th year of the project.
In February, she became the first Japanese artist to sign a contract with Umami Records, a leading indie label in Singapore, for her single "FLy.

In September of the same year, she released "lo V er", a duet featuring Singaporean singer-songwriter MARICELLE, a co-write song that was born from a meeting between the two when MARICELLE came to Japan from Singapore at the end of February 2020.
The song is a ballad where the song and the melody flow and spread out with a folky and gentle track, and you can feel yourself being enveloped from beginning to end. As if already feeling the momentum of the world even before the influence of Corona on Lockdown, I came up with the idea of expressing through sound "the connection between loved ones who have been physically separated from each other, transcending time and space in the heart and soul", and "dared" to create a song in a separate room for the track that UQiYO had originally created. The two of them sang and laughed at the same time in separate rooms without being able to see each other, and after many sessions, the song was born.

In November of the same year, they released "6000°C," a duet created through online co-writing with I Mean Us, a five-member dream pop band that has been attracting attention in the Taiwanese indie scene.

I Mean Us has just won the 2020 Best Alternative Pop Song award at Taiwan's indie music awards "金音創造獎". In 2019, they played together at a music festival in Taiwan and hit it off backstage. After that, they kept in touch with each other, and based on UQiYO's demo, they proposed arrangements to each other, and the song was completed. We didn't dare to discuss the image we felt for the song in detail, but after we sang each other's parts, we went over the answers and the song was completed as a single story as if we were guided by something. While checking the Mas-tering sound of the song in a dark room, a deep crimson light like magma suddenly spread behind UQiYO's eyelids, and he intuited that this was the energy of the earth. I thought it could be connected to the word Transcend, which was originally a key word in the song, so I decided to use the temperature at the center of the earth, 6000°C, as the title of the song. The music video was also directed by Rachel Chie Miller. The music video was also directed by Rachel Chie Miller, and is a beautiful combination of works by photographers from Taiwan and Japan, superimposed like a Möbius circle.

The single "invisible," a collaboration with singer-songwriter Froya from Malaysia, will be released on March 5, 2021, and was created during a collage session in Niigata, Japan, in February 2020 while living in the snow country. I tried to see Niigata through Froya's eyes and feel Niigata through Froya's antenna. I was excited to see and touch the snow itself for the first time, and was moved by the new discoveries I made with Froya.

She saw the weird, profound, and unique world of Japanese snow country, which she felt was both beautiful and fragile.
I challenged myself to express this experience in an infinitely detailed and deeply layered way, like a snowflake, like a super string theory with many branches.
If the color of sound is light, the color of sound is light. If the color of sound is light, then all the tones combine to create a white color, which is nothingness, a dream, dazzlingly transparent, and monstrous.

The song "Élan Vital," featuring Ryouhei Kubota, a handpan player from Niigata, was also included on the album, and the melody from a collage session with Froya and him in the snow country became the inspiration for the song.
