SHIMA featuring Miyachi “Machine”

Former software engineer, SHIMA just released her new single, “Machine.” The song mixes elements of R&B, electro-pop, and 90s hip hop. Rapping and singing in both Japanese as well as English, Shima wrote the song just before quitting her job to pursue music full-time. She describes the lyrics as “a broader commentary on how corporations treat their employees (especially in Japan).” Fellow rapper, Miyachi comes through to spit a bilingual verse as well.
