New Maho Littlebear: “Summer Nights”

The title along with the lyrics – “take me to the place to dance,” the first words sang here – hint at this being a total release of a song, one potentially about losing yourself and living while your young and so forth. Yet Kyoto’s Maho Littlebear hasn’t gone full EDM-pop-in-spirit on “Summer Nights.” Her singing can be a bit shaky on the verses, but when she needs to hit a high note and let it trail off, she adds a lovely bit of drama to the jittery synth-pop behind her. Which, speaking of, is a nice off-kilter sound for her, an array of synth blasts and rubbery bass. Listen below.
