LISTEN: Japanese Wallpaper – Waves (Ft. Pepa Knight)
Making a welcome return to the I OH YOU blog, today we feature Melbourne’s prodigious Japanese Wallpaper. The last time we heard from him was on the dreamy ‘Breathe In’ which featured Wafia, however this time around we bring to you his progressive new track ‘Waves’, featuring vocals from Jinja Safari multi-instrumentalist Pepa Knight. Waves exists in a space which develops a feeling of rolling progression yet still transcends well past any obvious breaking point. Consistently throughout, it retains a familiar pristine atmospheric backbone but surges throughout a sea of calm fray. There’s no doubting that Japanese Wallpaper is fast developing a diverse set of sounds and a steadily growing back catalogue with each carefully constructed single.
Japanese Wallpaper will play a Sunday night show at the Grace Darling on May 18th in Melbourne. Joining the lineup are Rat & Co and Lanks.
