SAWA, the singer songwriter who made her debut back in 2009, gets back to business with the release of her mini album “Bijin Hakumei Aegean Kai” and the PV for its eponymous title track. The look of the PV is that of the cleanup crew from a public bath enjoying the empty facilities with a glorious dance break. In a white t-shirt and red shorts, SAWA scrubs up the tile floor barefoot before the song starts to blare over the loudspeakers. And, boy does SAWA come to life. The happy-go-lucky music of “Bijin Hakumei Aegean Kai” enlivens the singer to work on her choreography with enthusiastic arm waves, twirls, and jumps around the bath house. If you’ve ever worked as late night cleanup crew, you’ve probably had a similar “no one is looking, let’s just dance!” moment (I know I have!). “Bijin Hakumei Aegean Kai” is earnest, enthusiastic, and definitely worth a listen. “Bijin Hakumei Aegean Kai” goes on sale April 17, 2019.
