New Baby Fire: “Seoul”

Tokyo indie-pop unit Baby Fire is back with “Seoul,” a skip-ready number nudged forward by an acoustic guitar melody and breezy drum beat. The backdrop is pleasant, but primarily works because it allows vocalist/guitarist Akko’s singing to be the highlight, and she turns in a strong performance. Her voice hits the right balance of melancholy and drama, the latter coming out as the song ramps up for its final stretch. Get it here, or listen below.
