Some groups really mesh well with my non-idol aesthetic. Take Yanakoto Sotto Mute, for example. The live band instrumentation is nice, but the arrangements and musical style really bump them up a notch. The promotional video for Lily, from Yanakoto Sotto Mute’s soon-to-be-released 1st album, makes a case for the biggest contrast of all: life and death. You can see it with the interiors: deathly still with faded whites and weathered paint. You see it with the exteriors: full sun, an ocean heaving with life, and grasses that literally connect existence with the earth. The paradox of floral bouquet, neither fully alive nor fully dead, cuts through every scene like a reminder to choose between a morgue-like existence and a thrashing scream of life. I’m definitely picking up a copy of “BUBBLE” when it’s released on April 5, 2017. Listen to “Lily” and make your own choice.
