Ayane Yamazaki – “Kitchen Song (Dance Version)” single
“‘Kitchen Song (Dance Version)’ is a song in which a young girl tries to live her life while thinking about her distant lover. The girl in the room recalls the days spent with her lover. It is especially unforgettable to dance together in the kitchen. Casual everyday life with a lover. Sentimental. But it is supremely romantic. But she knows he won’t return anymore. Dream pop and electro dance. New pop music connecting Tokyo and New York.”
‘Kitchen Song (Dance Version)’ contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the likable tune possesses groovy instrumentation flavored with electro-pop, J-Pop, and city-pop elements.
“‘Counting on my fingers’ is a song about a girl who came to Tokyo from the sea town, fell in love, and finally became an adult. Girls always yearn for a tough woman living in Tokyo. Sing between girl and woman, dream and reality. An exquisite blend of ’80s Japanese city pop and American modern bedroom pop.”
Ayane Yamazaki is a name you should remember and an exciting artist to watch.
When she was 17, she appeared at FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL 2016 as the youngest singer-songwriter ever in the festival’s history.
Shortly afterward, she became a very hot topic, ranked no. 35 on the chart of Japan’s best FM radio station J-WAVE without advertisement.
“‘Angel in Blue’ is a dream-pop that mixes urban jazz and soul. Love accepts everything. When a girl notices it, a love song is born. Falsetto voice that flow throughout this album expresses the feelings of a girl who noticed love.”
This summer, Ayane Yamazaki passed the audition of AWAL (including Lauv, R3HAB, Tom Misch, Bruno Major, Rex Orange County, Bat for Lashes), global distribution service by Kobalt music group.
Her success marks the second time for a Japanese and the first achievement for a Japanese woman.
‘Kitchen Song(Dance Version)’ is featured on her 6-track EP, entitled, “Life”.
“‘Sleep to Dream’ is a work depicting the faint but painful love of a teenager in high school. Dream and reality. The scars of love coming and going. Even if you grow, there are things that you must not throw away. The sensitivity of the girl. And it grows by parting. Goodbye, a blue shining day. Japan’s first Sleep Rock.”
“‘muse’ was inspired by Brooklyn shoegazers. The ultimate love is your desire to be a person you like. In other words, you are your own lover. It is the most sexual imagination beyond the concept of love. The sound of Japanese prose poems shows the new possibilities of Tokyo’s lo-fi music.”
“‘I want to understand you’—the main character is a fashionable girl who lives in Tokyo. Dance music with a light rhythm like a love that keeps moving. Cool dance tune is the newest expression in Tokyo. A modern alternative music life. The latest type of lo-fi sound of a young girl in Tokyo.”
