Japanese pop band Yogee New Waves shared the new music video accompanying “Ashita tenki ni nare,” from its latest release, to the MOON e.p.
The four-man band dropped the five-track EP Friday (Dec. 6). Along with the aforementioned Motown-flavored shuffle beat number, the EP features the title track, “to the moon” — currently airing as the theme of Hitori Camp de Kutte Neru, a drama series about solo camping — “Honey Pie” and “Sweet Melodies,” which frontman Kengo Kakudate recorded at home after the passing of a typhoon.
The project also includes a remix of “to the moon” by Sen Morimoto, the Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist whose self-produced “Cannonball” music video took off on 88rising‘s YouTube account, lauded for his outstanding musical and stylistic range.
The band hooked up with the young visual artist Pennacky once again for the “Ashita tenki ni nare” video, following their collaboration on the visuals for “Bluemin’ Days,” off the band’s third EP, SPRING CAVE e.p.
The video shot on 16-millimeter film adds a distinctively analog charm to the footage as it captures the natural expressions of the four members along with the actual equipment they use to record and perform.
