Gravity Circus – Shuteye

This is the latest single from the duo Gravity Circus (Japanese Jimmy “Onibi” Nagaura Yabiko and Dutch German Ken “Toro” Luske). The track opens with up with a melancholy chord progression on acoustic guitar and Jimmy’s scratchy voice that is perfectly matched to the overall vibe. The track progresses to the chorus which is a blend of indie pop and electronica with it’s electronic textures that are tastefully placed. The melody of the chorus is beautiful as well as the ambience.

The song tells a tale of memories past that still haunt but with a yearning to let it be and to move forward.
