New World’s End Girlfriend: “Meguri”

World’s End Girlfriend don’t keep things simple. The project’s new song “Meguri” clocks in at nearly ten minutes, and finds Katsuhiko Maeda crafting a dramatic slow burner. The first half is all build — Maeda arranges strings and piano to create a dizzying climb upward, pretty but also a touch unsettling. It’s when the electric guitar slides in that “Meguri” starts ramping up. And it makes the final stretch, when Maeda lets the song just burst open into a combination of feedback and orchestral echoes, all the more memorable. Listen above.
