New Seira Kariya: “Zawa Make It”

Seira Kariya comes through almost every summer with big, bright electro-pop numbers perfect for the arrival of sunnier days. She took a little bit of a break over the last couple of years, but returned in June, first with the peppy “Cover” Girl” and its persistent bounce, and now with the even more outright optimistic “Zawa Make It.” Backed by a more chopped-up arrangement full of oscillating synth melodies and vocal chirps (label “future bass” if that’s your thing), it allows Kariya to deliver a song all about staying upbeat and envisioning brighter days, which justifies my use of a weather reference in the first sentence. This is right in her wheelhouse, and offers up some simple joy at just the right time. Listen above.
