DAOKO’s fourth single gets a promotional video today with the release of “Step Up LOVE”. The song matches DAOKO with longtime pop star Okamura Yasuyuki who you might know from his Space Dandy OP, his numerous hits dating back to the 1980’s, or his troubles with the law. Set on a basketball court, the two artists face off with their signature moves. The dance track provides a great soundtrack for the boogie with DAOKO and Okamura trading lines and a strained embrace before the end. The blend of electronic elements and funky guitars work together seamlessly for this Okamura composition (DAOKO handled songwriting duties), and DAOKO’s cool vocals contrast Okamura’s hot-blooded vocal style. They make it rain, alright. Stick around for the kiss-off. “Step Up LOVE” steps up to the court on October 18, 2017.
