New Oresama: “Hoto Hashiru”

I mean, congrats to Oresama for landing an anime ending sequence, that’s a pretty solid career step. But I will never watch this ghost cartoon that “Hoto Hashiru” appears in, so I have to just absorb it as music. Thankfully, their latest is a nice bit of fidgety electro-pop, loaded up with small ripples that keep the energy moving (especially fond of the post-chorus sections, where the half-second vocal snippets do their best work). But it’s anchored by lead vocalist Pon, who speeds alongside the splintered funk music and adds in all the extra energy needed. Listen above.
