New Yoshino Yoshikawa: “Les Chats”

“Ultrapop” producer Yoshino Yoshikawa has always been a sucker for cute things, but “Les Chats” might be the closest he’s come to overdoing it. The lyrics — written by Cpnnn (@kittiesgalore, natch) and sung by Rionos — focus on cats, which is fine, I mostly just play Neko Atsume nowadays so no foul on the topic. It can just get a little too goofy at times, mostly when it gets to parts about rainbows. Yet that’s ultimately not much of an issue because of Yoshikawa’s production, a big high-stepping rush of synths that actually sounds rainbow-ish, adding energy to an otherwise cuddly song. Listen above.
