There’s no shortage of inventive production on Lycoriscoris’s release ‘Utsurou.’ Lifted from his latest LP Chiyu, the track is centred around the highs and lows of life – the title roughly translating to “change” in Japanese.
Seamlessly blending digital and organic elements has always been characteristic of the Japanese producer, but what makes this track most impressive is Lycoriscoris’s ability to amplify different sides of his music within one single track. While ‘Utsurou‘ encompasses aspects of minimalism, the track is still energetic and emotive.
He explains the origins of the track: “’Utsurou‘ means things are “changing” in Japanese. It is sad and beautiful at the same time because all things are in flux and no two moments are the same. All life is short, but I think that’s why people live it so hard. The song is like a hymn to humanity.”
