CHOON OF THE DAY: "SLEEPING IN WAKING" - Rina Sawayama
Newcomers like this creative Japanese chanteuse Rina Sawayama prove we're far from reaching a point of sonic monotone. "Sleeping In Waking" is quite possibly the most original track I've heard in 2013 so far. The song premiered recently on disco naïveté, one of my favourite music blogs out there. 22 year old Londoner and Cambridge graduate, Rina Sawayama, takes influences from her 90's R&B/Pop led youth and skews them through a contemporary vision. Her debut release "Sleeping in Waking", recorded in-between her bedroom and studio, is a bright and dark journey highlighted with electronic allure. The song is an absolute vocal, compositional and productional masterpiece. The EP is out digitally and as a limited 7" single on 15th April via Make Mine Records.
