New Haruno: “Currant”

It’s that time of the year, where we start looking slightly back on the good releases of 2018’s first half. Producer Haruno’s Vocaloid-powered set Filia is one of the last six month’s nicer surprises, and it’s great to see them checking back in with “Currant.” What starts as a pleasant-enough bit of pop quickly turns comes the chorus with the beat picking up and the synthesizer wobbling off. And like on the full-length from earlier in the calendar, the way they use Vocaloid — letting the digital edges show — meshes well with the music itself. Listen above.
