New Suiyoubi No Campanella: “Utah”

I’m convinced Komuai, the singer and main focus of the Suiyoubi No Campanella, is going to be big in the near future, as she boasts that elusive energy and personality that few other J-Pop artists have. That said, Suiyoubi No Campanella remains off in their own world, making nearly seven-minute-long chanty numbers. “Utah” (off their last EP) is produced by Osaka’s Oorutaichi, which explains why this one leans trippy, and though it wouldn’t suffer with a minute cut off, it’s an intriguing development for an outfit keen to spinning off in all sorts of directions (and when it hits the center of its trance-like center, it’s a real treat).
