New Universe Nekoko Featuring Tsvaci: “Online Love”

Shoegaze-leaning outfit Universe Nekoko (formerly written as Uchu Nekoko because we love our Japanese words at Make Believe Melodies) recently teamed up with singer-songwriter Tsvaci for an achingly sweet song called “Online Love.” “Down In The DM” this isn’t — whatever musings about tech-guided romance this song ponders on aren’t really clear, as it is more of a easy-going reflection, one where Tsvaci’s voice drifts over a gentle backdrop of keyboard chirps and physical-enough bass. It’s neither sad nor overly optimistic, but cautiously upbeat, a trace of a jitter hiding in the mostly straightforward singing. Listen above.
