Cornelius plays with contrasting vibes in the greatly crafted “Sometime / Someplace”

After the very good reception of “If you’re here”, Shibuya Kei pioneer Cornelius is back with “Sometime / Someplace”, a newly released number featured in the producer’s upcoming record “MELLOW WAVES” ( June 28).

The track doesn’t stray too far from the mood of “If you’re here”, with a vocal interpretation and soothing electronic bass lines that emanate clear melancholic vibes; at the same time, “Sometime / Someplace” features several uplifting elements that mostly lie in layers of frantic acoustic riffs and playful drum patterns, creating an effective contrast that keeps the listener engaged. A totally unexpected electric guitar solo brings slightly noisy elements to the table, a very nice touch that works perfectly in the context of the track.

Be sure to listen to the track down below, and watch the wonderful video as well. It’s really, really cool.
