New Bicco Beat: “Nostalgic Days”

Seeing as how Japan is currently enjoying a real obsession with nostalgia (and, honestly, seems like this holds true for a lot of places in 2018), the throwback project Bicco Beat releasing a track titled “Nostalgic Days” seems a little too on the nose. But at least they managed to make something on the pleasant side of melancholy, avoiding any of the conservative trappings that nostalgia often carries with it. “Nostalgic Days” moves at a stroll, recalling the most relaxed of early ’80s techno-pop but with a sigh added because…well, those times aren’t coming back, no matter how many dusty synthesizers you buy. A nice dip into nostalgia that doesn’t last too long. Listen above.
