New Kamisama Club: “Sugarhead No Koibito”

Duo Kamisama Club have a mini-album on the way via Purre Goohn, and “Sugarhead No Koibito” shows they are only getting trippier with their music. “Sugarhead” plays out like a distant cousin of “kawaii bass” fare, zipping ahead on a stuttering beat and featuring all sorts of loopy details in the mix — pitched-up voices, samples of all sorts, bongos. It’s a rush of a pop song, but Kamisama Club wrangle in all these elements and assemble a catchy and (emotionally) sweet number from them. Listen above.
