New Ancient Youth Club: “Highline Wo Yokokiite”

On their latest song, Ancient Youth Club shoot for drama, and get it just right. I don’t want to ever put too much stock in the images uploaded alongside songs, but an ending credits roll hints at something potentially cheesy. Yet “Highline Wo Yokokiite” balances it all well. It certainly builds, and isn’t afraid to approach schlock (those keyboard notes), but they never go overboard with it, keeping it more pleasant than screen-focused. Plus, the hook manages to sound a bit off, like sung through a layer of digital sparks. Listen above.
