New Wagatsuma: “Fureru”

Sometimes songs can do one thing so well they don’t require much reflection. Such was the case with Wagatsuma’s “Slowdown,” a calming bit of pop that used a little to leave a big impact (and offer an apt backdrop for just zoning out). “Fureru” is mostly another great example of how to turn out a nice soothing song, but it also offers a little more space to celebrate Wagatsuma’s songwriting chops. Like how they use voices to create disorienting passages that can then turn suddenly, or how the hook just breaks into a lovely gallop to pick up the energy when just needed. Listen above.
