New Toriena Featuring Yunomi: “Time Capsule”

It feels like Toriena has been prepping for a major-label debut for a while now, but the moment has finally arrived this October with her first major album. “Time Capsule” offers a glimpse at one way she can go with a larger spotlight on her. She teams up with Yunomi to craft a number in less of a rush to get to the busy part, but rather starting slowly and then reaching a big drop. It’s solid although it does make me wonder just what a major full-length from her will highlight that previous releases won’t (“Time Capsule” implies it will be her singing which…fine, but not a highlight), but it really gets good in the last end, when she breaks into some speedy spoken word and then a more impassioned singing style. That’s the energy right there. Listen above.
