New Capchii: “Let’s Build A Snowman”

Tokyo is still thawing out after a big ol’ snowstorm, so a high-energy like this feels fitting on a day where a little heat would work wonders. Capchii falls into that nebulous “kawaii” zone a handful of Japanese electronic artists have crept into, but “Let’s Build A Snowman” matches fluttering synths and shiny chimes with heavier elements. See the beat, for one, or the flurry of samples crashing through the song and adding a punch to the track. It follows a familiar formula, but Capchii creates a nice balance between sweet and sweaty that pushes it ahead of most. Listen above.
