DECAYCAST Premieres: NAOKO “Bloom” (Self Released, 2019)
Naoko is named after the beautiful and somber character
from Murakami’s book Norwegian Wood.
Here is the first single from Norway based producers NAOKO, who bring a thick, dense, percussion style, hypnotic and catchy loops, sputtering shifting hi hats and snares, throbbing bass and a creative mix of production style to their new single “Bloom”, off their upcoming EP, which you can listen to for the first time, right here, below:
“Bloom” blends heavy, synthetic beats with lush, slowly melting vocals in contrast to the dark, creeping bass and plucky strings and hoover style synths that create a warm, thick backdrop to showcase the vocal delivery. Referencing American producers like ABRA and FKA TWIGS, NAOKO spins a haunting sonic tale for listeners to get lost on a late night road. Take a listen to this heavy and lush done poem anthem of touch and change and be on the lookout for more from NAOKO.
