Walk around the Shinjuku skyscraper district at night…or head up to the 29th floor of any building to indulge in some food…and you’ll see so many lights on, even at 9 or 10 PM. “Are they actually working in there?” someone once asked me.

This is simplicity at its finest, something begging to soundtrack those fleeting moments of sweetness you deserve so much. Get it here or listen below.
