New Japanese Vibes (74) – Ancient Youth Club ‘Stay’

Hokkaido-based indie-pop band Ancient Youth Club treads their first step on the Japanese musical mainstream with new track ‘Stay’ from their debut EP For, Emma. Inspired by the western indie rock/pop scenes, the tune skips along a gentle mix of jangling guitars tinged with hazy colours, Ohno’s velvety vocals, and a sustained nostalgic undercurrent matched by a music video immersed in the vivid night lights of Tokyo.
