New Mitsume: “Akogare”

The past year has seen so many of the vaunted indie bands of the last few years call it a day, I’m not on a perpetual watch for the next group who used to play 2:30 a.m. sets in Shibuya in 2013 to call it quits (and continue to confirm I’m getting old). Well, thank goodness Mitsume are still going strong. They have a new album out in early June titled A Long Day and have shared the video for opener “Akogare,” a breezy but yearning number where every element clicks together just right, and the bed of singing backing up the main vocals make it all the more sweet. Listen above.
