Using polyrhythmic textures woven in and out of a driving bassline, Lycoriscoris pursues the concept of movement in ‘Utsurou’. Deeply nuanced with elements of organic and electronic intertwining in a symbiotic relationship, the producer has created a dynamic sound that is but a small element of a carefully crafted full-length album.
Lycoriscoris shares the meaning behind the song: “Utsurou means things are “changing” in Japanese. It is sad and beautiful at the same time because all things are in flux and no two moments are the same. All life is short, but I think that’s why people live it so hard. The song is like a hymn to Humanity.”
