I have had this one on repeat for a while now – well the first track at least. Mixing jpop, indiepop and good ol’ rock and roll is one Poco_ , who is a vocalist from Hokkaido. She is joined by Tomo who some may know from Japanese shoegaze Ether Feels.
海月 (Jellyfish) is a frantic, fuzzy and addictive listen with the distinctive vocals cutting loose. The title track 蝶々 (Butterfly) is a complete contrast being a laid back song with melodic guitars that sometimes echo to a Spanish siesta. It’s not my bag at all although I can appreciate the lovely vocals. However, it’s Jellyfish that I want to listen to again – I have been stung that’s for sure.
Get it from here.
