Satomimagae on Awa

“I was in my final year of university when I started work on awa. my daily life was a repetition of classes and a part time job during the daytime, and biological experiments in the university labs at night. I didn’t feel connected with a society outside of this cycle. I created the songs of Awa as fantastical response to the introspection and associated feelings playing out in my real life. It was also only a few months after a huge earthquake hit Tokyo in 2011 when I started recording. the instabilities, in many ways, might be reflected on this album”
