Indigo with Baby FIre - An Interview


Seguindo o caminho contrário a grande maioria das bandas japonesas, o Baby Fire, acaba de lançar seu primeiro snigle "Water/Indigo". Não, definitivamente você não encontrará vestígios de MBV por aqui, o Baby Fire é melódico, sonhador e lo-fi ao mesmo tempo, algo como se o Mazzy Star o The Sundays e o Yo La Tengo se encontrassem por aí pra fazer uma jam.

Um single deliciosamente pegajoso que deixa claro o potencial do Baby Fire.

Esperamos ansiosamente por mais.
