Mellow city-pop and Kayokyoku inspirations surround “foreign lavennew,” a new track from colacola, a producer and composer based in Japan. Described as a meshing between classic and modern sounds, “foreign lavennew” dazzles with its twinkling keys and reflective synth pulses.
A serene vocal charm lingers throughout the verses, while the chorus injects a danceable charisma with the moody synth pads and uptick in vocal pitch. “foreign lavennew” is a stylish and melodic success that will certainly appeal to fans of city-pop and most iterations of hooky/atmospheric pop in general.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2023’ Spotify playlist.
