Ogikubo Station – Okinawan Love Songs

The opener on this EP Would I Break My Heart Enough For You is not far from being the perfect jangling indiepop song. The way the guitars skirt along the punk-pop borders with the female vocals joining in puts it right straight into C86 territory. Spend Some Time With Me is a mix of punk vibes mixed with power pop and is both short and sweet. However, I am not sure about the last track Dr Worm which is a bit too “arty-farty” for me, but I am sure many will appreciate the Talking Heads/Tina Weymouth post-punk vibe. That said it’s the first track you will want full-stop! Okinawan Love Songs is out now on Asian Man Records.
