🐣 AYANE YAMAZAKI — KITCHEN SONG DANCE VERSION [初演 • PREMIERE]

⌾ LISTEN TO AYANE YAMAZAKI, KITCHEN SONG DANCE VERSION ⌾

Funk dwells in 'Kitchen Song (Dance Version)' by Ayane Yamazaki; the electro bass, with its street-level fuzz and squelch, bounces the track along like a rubber ball, providing the groundwork for the cheery heart of this track. Guitar stabs kaleidescopic and warped add further veneers of funk to Yamazaki's cocktail of sound. Funk dwells here, yes, but so do other, poignant things.

High, single-note strings dance longingly amongst the hefty kicks and trash-can snares and rattling hi-hats in more than just a nod to city pop; soft synths progress with drama behind the treble, giving a soft cushion to the track. It's equal parts jaunty and ephemeral, present and dwelling on the past.

Pairing up what she refers to as "New York" dream pop with the smart, lovelorn feel of the Tokyo-centric genre of the 1980s, Yamazaki's breathy vocals tell the story of dancing in the kitchen, everyday life, casual moments with her lover; the otherwise beautiful mundane this track illustrates in its buoyant simplicity.


  • 🔔 'Kitchen Song (Dance Version)' is taken from Ayane Yamazaki's 6-track independent release LIFE, set for release on 30th October.
