New Japanese Vibes (71) – 折坂悠太 Orisaka Yuta あさま ‘Asama’

折坂悠太 Orisaka Yuta’s あさま ‘Asama’ is a track to let your body and senses float away from reality and indulge in a beautifully lazy vibe. Smooth harmonies flow in dainty fashion and vocal melodies evocative of the Showa-era kayokyoku sound world trickle out of Orisaka’s rich vocal colours, while offbeat chords from the electric guitar infuse a tinge of reggae in the song’s gentle vibe.
