We get quite excited about music that spans genres, and are always on the lookout for interesting mixes and combos of music styles. So we’re well used to hearing stuff that’s slightly ‘different’. Even so, our minds were blown by this multi-layered piece of innovative genius from Kishi Bashi (Kauru Ishibashi).
Even after listening to Say Yeah multiple times, we’re still not quite sure how to describe or categorise it, so we won’t. All we ask, is that you listen to it at least twice – maybe not back-to-back, but give it a try again in a few hours, or even tomorrow. If you don’t fall in love with it by the 2nd listen then, well, maybe Batman can help you but we sure as hell can’t.
The track is the lead single from Kishi Bashi’s upcoming album Sonderlust. Due for release on 16 September, it will be the third solo record from the US singer, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter.
