Tokyo-based musician maisou has been making some serious waves this year, kickstarting her musical career with her self-titled heater at the end of last year, then working together with France-born Moe Shop to create “lovesick”. Now we’re finally getting another taste of her sound, working together once more with T5UMUT5UMU to craft her debut five-track EP, “Fuyukan”. Released via Japanese netlabel OMOIDE LABEL, you can check out “Fuyukan” below:
From start to finish the EP embodies the exact chillout vibes necessary for these excessively hot summer days. There’s no doubt that the EP is a departure from maisou’s usual hard-hitting flow, but it’s exciting to see a more slowed-down side of her music as well. There’s an extremely raw energy to the EP, an honesty to it that feels lacking elsewhere, maisou isn’t just saying words without depth. Spread out across five tracks, maisou’s latest “Fuyukan” is every bit worth the listen.
Available now via OMOIDE LABEL’s official Bandcamp, you can get maisou’s “Fuyukan” EP as a free download, here.
