Kyoto Lo-Fi – “Godot”


When I first heard Kyoto Lo-Fi in 2016 (with their Black Rainbow EP), I was impressed by the group’s enjoyably ability to transition between hectic rhythms and guitar-fronted hooks, particularly on track “Spaceships”. Since then, they have toured and recorded new material. Now, they’re officially back at it with new single “Godot” — kicked off by guitar-driven tremolo and that enjoyably hectic rhythm section. The track manages to feel excitedly brisk without sounding rushed, with the vocals emitting a suave vocal tone with a bit of a Julian Casablancas likeness. It’s nice to hear from this act again.
