Sapphire Slows – “Allegoria” – [Not Not Fun]
Sapphire Slows (aka Kinuko Hiramatsu)is a a solor artist from Tokyo. All of her music is recorded in her bedroom with a lap top (Albeton Live) and some keyboards. This is dreamy shoegaze-y pop and Kinuko’s vocals have a hushed ethereal sound very reminiscent of Cocteau Twins. Atmospheric with sporadic beats, very minimal and very beautiful.
