Drift Downstream: Pechica’s “Yes”

Plenty of music sounds “chilled out” but not nearly as much stuff comes off as actually relaxed enough to just float away. Osaka’s Pechica, though, manage to hit on this exact feeling with the dreamy downcurrent stream of a song “Yes.” The group works very little into the song’s opening moment, just some bass, drums and lonely synths before the vocals drift in. This group’s lead singer has a deceptively laid-back delivery that, when coupled with the jazz shavings present here, makes for an almost sleepy listen. Yet she is just as capable of making the moment more urgent come the chorus…and late stretches of the song…temporarily making this lazy-river cruise more gripping. Listen here.
