We can always count on Kishi Bashi to release great music and based on his newly released single “Summer of ’42,” he’s done it yet again. The track is taken off his new album Omoiyari, released via May 31st via Joyful Noise Recordings.

The swoonful track is as lovely and romantic as you’d expect from Bashi, with all the beautiful strings and thoughtful theatrics that is unique to his sound and something that I can’t imagine anyone else pulling off. We’re excited to hear what else Bashi has in store for us on the rest of the record.
