Hop Along: Maho Littlebear’s “Quite (Everybody Know Nothing)”

Kyoto’s Maho Littlebear makes up one half of the duo 20th Century Girls, and she releases plenty of solid music alone as well. Recent highlight “Quite (Everybody Know Nothing)” hops forward via a minimal electro beat, a simplistic arrangement that lends itself well to the dancefloor. Except Littlebear seemingly wants to take this number into a different place altogether – her vocals skip along, except she’s joined by a just higher-pitched version of herself, creating a disorienting feel that carries over the whole song, even when some especially luxurious synth lines glide in.
