In the thick summer haze of Okinawa, teenage dreams are committed to tape. A young heart meets a musical mind beyond its years, with sweet declarations of love over deep, dreamy electronics. New romantics and funk pioneers appear through psychedelic mists of passing time. Forward we go, further into the fog.
When we heard Stillsound's music we simply had to put something out with the seventeen-year-old from Okinawa, Japan. There's an unpretentious, youthful simplicity to the lyrics, countered by what seems a surprisingly mature outlook on life, a lucid self-awareness, reinforced when you speak to him. In his introduction email, Stillsound told us: "I do dumb things any teenager does at this pivotal time in life", and "I love cats I have three".
This free EP serves as a little taster while we work with Stillsound on a full EP for WotNot later in 2013.
