New Mitsume: “Sedan”

For a band capable of such laid-back numbers, Mitsume’s music relies heavily on movement. Many of their songs chug along like a car doing the speed limit on the highway. “Sedan” almost takes this literally, with the title for one and references to just wanting to go…somewhere in the lyrics. But the best Mitsume numbers work in all sorts of longing and excitement into the cruise, capturing what it actually feels like to sit back and really roll thoughts around in your head. “Sedan”doesn’t reach “Esper” heights, but ends up a serviceable Mitsume number thanks to the backing vocals and the moment when everything rips open near the end.
