········· release Music Video for new track “Suraido”

As you may have noticed, I haven’t been writing here in a while: working twelve-hours night shifts every single day sadly leaves me with pretty much no time to do anything, other than sleeping and relaxing a few hours. My writing routine will resume from mid-September on, when the hot season will finally come to an end. Thanks for your patience!

I’m taking these 10 minutes of my time today to write about this new ········· (or Dots) song, that I feel like suggesting to all of you guys. Just like other aficionados of the Alt Idol current, I’ve been talking about this enigmatic Shoegaze Idol unit for a while now, and in case you wanna know more about it, here’s an in-depth article about I wrote for ARAMA! JAPAN.

This new song from Dots is called Suraido (or Slide), and it’s produced by Azusa Suga, guitarist of well-known Shoegaze outfit FOR TRACY’S HYDE; this is not the first time the man collaborates with these enigmatic girls, as he’s one of the constant contributors behind the project along with other celebrated songwriters of the Japanese Shoegaze scene. The track is a straight-to-the-point number that’s not afraid to highlight the characteristics of the sound adopted by the unit, and the execution results detailed and never banal, successfully conveying the feelings typical of this genre; the vocal performance by the girls gives a huge boost to the whole atmosphere, and the balance between their voices as well as the performance itself sounds stronger and more convincing than ever. Definitely a pleasant and solid number to release ahead of a 70 minutes-long single.

Be sure to watch the video and listen to the track down here. See you guys soon!

– Alex
