Kaori Mukai – “A Summer’s Dream”


A track fit for summer-yearning as autumn begins to take hold, “A Summer’s Dream” is an alluring new track from Kaori Mukai, an artist originally from Fukuoka, Japan. The track showcases a glistening city-pop feeling, with references to city lights and soulful key trickling converging with melodic vocals. The suave, jazz-pop vocals alternate cohesively between paced longing and escalating excitement, with the dazzling keys and guitar licks matching suit. In city-pop tradition, a hooky chorus resonates with memorable key-forward effervescence and polished guitar adornments. “A Summer’s Dream” is a melodic charmer throughout.

Mukai performs actively as a jazz/pop singer in both Jakarta, Indonesia and Tokyo, Japan.

“A Summer’s Dream” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2021’ Spotify playlist.
