spangle call lilli line

大好きな下北沢から素晴らしいバンドSpangle call Lilli line を見つけ出すv (ちょっちょっと変なバンド名だけど(汗))

I’ve fallen pretty hard for this amazing little band, Spangle call Lilli line. Hailing from Shimokitazawa, one of my very favourite corners of Tokyo, this indie rock band is a blend of lush ambient downtempo rock, electronica, hauntingly surreal lyrics, and beautifully delicate, layered vocals. The band is made up of an illustrator, a graphic designer, and a photographer- what a magical mix. Japan Live has a fantastic interview with them here. Meanwhile, I’m digging singer Kana Otsubo’s laidback Shimokitazawa-esque style; Shimokitazawa has a bit of the bite of Tokyo style but without so much of the trendiness; there’s something more thrown together, relaxed, and unique about this part of town. Some of my favourite pieces from my closet are products of many a Shimokitazawa shopping jag (followed of course by waffles at the best waffle cafe in the world- but I digress.)

As for the shimmery lush glow that is Spangle call Lilli line music- take a listen for yourselves.


love, wen
