Smartphone Bling: Seaside-métro’s “Kazehikunayo”

Music, made on an iPhone…what a novel idea! That’s the hook for Seaside-métro, but the smartphone producer manages way more than novelty with the chipper “Kazehikunayo.” Other songs featured on their SoundCloud page feel way more phone-generated, charming but also not far from default ringtone. But “Kazehikunayo” zooms forward on synthesizer wooshes and a persistent beat, topped off by a kid-like choir vocal really bringing out the Katamari Damacy feels for this. And that’s a good comparison, because “Kazehikunayo” manages the same goofy-fun feelings and consistent skip of anything from that soundtrack…but in pocket size! Listen above.
