I had to do a quick post about the song that caught my breath today. I have been struggling to find good music in Japanese and with the plethora of good options present in Korean, I’m afraid I’m being swept away in the wrong direction.
I love Korean indie music because they touch my heart even though I don’t understand the lyrics (Makes sense?). Today I decided I’d give Japanese indie another try and headed over to 8tracks to listen to some. And then, this song played and I almost died.
It is beautiful. And if you look at the lyrics, they are so simple you could sing along after hearing it just once. What caught my attention though was the similarity I found between this and the number of Korean songs I had listened to until now. It definitely has to be the reason why I need/must have it on my phone.
You can read a little more about Hemenway over here. They don’t work as a band anymore though which is a pity since their music is good. I have listened to their songs but there seems to be nothing quite like this one.
Please have a listen here:
I’m also looking for recommendations for Japanese indie music like this. So please let me know in the comments.
