When Gep [Macadaeg, drummer of Autotelic] shared the link for this music video, I was anticipating some instrumental rock sound to flood my eardrums. I haven’t heard of the song nor of the band before, so I was assuming a Japanese math rock band. When the video began playing, there was a rush of soothing chill that ran down to my back. The track was laidback, downtempo, and utterly swabe.
森の言葉 is part of neosoul and R&B Japanese band, MARTER’s new album, Songs of Four Seasons, which was recently released under Jazzy Sport.
Here’s a teaser for the album.
