New Pictured Resort: “Phenomenon On My Pillow”

Ahhhh, a summer indie-pop jam for those who want to spend the season staring longingly out of a window. Osaka’s Pictured Resort specialize in making songs that just drift by, the usual skippy pace of Kansai twee swapped out for something a little more leisurely, but still as hooky as most of their contemporaries. “Phenomenon On My Pillow,” out via Miles Apart Records, finds them entering more outright sad territory, everything playing out just a little slower and the vocals sounding more resigned. Listen above.
