New Mitsume: “Namerakana Hibi”

When Mitsume introduces a fresh sound to their strolling rock, it really comes through clearly. It doesn’t take long into new number “Namerakana Hibi,” from forthcoming album Ghosts, for a new wrinkle to pop up in a song that initially sounds locked-in like so many of the quartet’s previous releases. But then lurking a little deeper beneath the guitar melodies are flashes of new percussion for the group, touches that add a vacation feel to the number…and helps make the rising drama of the hook land even better. Listen above.
