Soft Return: Radicalfashion And Tony Chanty’s “Way Home”

Kobe’s Radicalfashion has been kicking around for over a decade, releasing primarily piano-focused numbers on the sparse but intricate side. Singing popped up at times, though often in a warped way that added an out-of-space element to Radicalfashion’s work. “Way Home,” however, offers something a touch more straightforward. Japanese artist Tony Chanty guests, singing over a simple yet charming arrangement by Radicalfashion. She delivers a sweet, at times conflicted performance that rightfully deserves to have little in its way. Still, the edges blur a bit — her voice gets multi-tracked and eventually splinters off, giving a dreamy feel to the song’s second half. Listen above.
