UQiYO Releases New Song “lo V er” featuring MARICELLE
- Japanese pop music project UQiYO teamed up with Singaporean singer-songwriter MARICELLE to release a new song “lo V er” on November 6, 2020.
The song will appear on their upcoming album, which is expected to be released in 2021.
This marks the first time UQiYO and MARICELLE have worked together. They recorded the song in separate rooms without seeing each other's faces.
UQiYO said of the song, “I wonder what kind of colour we would be able to produce if we were to put all our energy into a bucket of paint. The purpose of making separate rooms for the recording was so that there was a completely different sound in terms of quality of the speakers and what was heard was only the vocals which came and went into each other's rooms. At first one might feel a sense of discomfort in this sound phase (if we can call it that), but as we gradually progress in the song, we hope that listeners will be able to notice our succession in feeling the love that has transcended through time and space.”
UQiYO started by Yuqi Kato (vocals) and Satoshi Shimada (drums & percussion) in 2010. UQiYO is well versed in rock, ethnic music and jazz. The music, which takes its name from the world "ukiyo" (a floating world), blends in with everyday life, while its 'sound image' and 'philosophy' transports the listener to the extraordinary.
