Japanese Wallpaper - aka Gab Strum - has achieved a lot more than most 17 year olds. His debut single 'Breathe In (featuring Wafia)', recently scored a spot in Zach Braff's latest film Wish I Was Here, alongside an impressive roster of indie artists such as Bon Iver, The Shins and more.
Not only is he the only Aussie, but he is also the youngest artist to be featured in the film and on the soundtrack. The multi-instrumentalist released his debut EP 'War Peace Rockets Ships' in 2011, and has since been compared to the likes of Boards Of Canada and Tycho. His follow up single 'Waves' features our August Launching Pad artist Pepa Knight of Jinja Safari, and continues on with Strum's atmospheric and moody electronica.
Hoping to release another single before the end of the year, we will have to wait until September to hear his musical cameo in Wish I Was Here, when the film will be out in Australian cinemas.
