Mina Okabe – “Miss Those Days” single
“It’s about friendship – about a close friend of mine. We used to be together all the time, but one day, she had to move far away. And even though we promised to stay in touch, everything we had just faded out and disappeared. ‘Miss Those Days’ is about everything you take for granted and the wonder of sudden change.” – Mina Okabe explained
‘Miss Those Days’ is a song very dear to Mina Okabe. The bittersweet tune contains a relatable narrative, ear-soothing vocals, and blissful melodies. Also, “Miss Those Days” possesses guitar-laden instrumentation flavored with a dreamy indie-pop vibration. Furthermore, the song is featured on Okabe’s debut album, entitled, “Better Days.”
