CHAI - CHAI (Exclusive Pink Vinyl)
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
Japanese pop band, CHAI, returns to their roots in their new self-titled album, drawing inspiration from their Japanese heritage and the music that raised them. On CHAI, the band draws directly from city pop, a Tokyo-born sound popularized in the 1970s and 80s. City pop was a Japanese take on Western lounge music, borrowing from jazz, boogie, funk, and yacht rock to create a sound that straddled two cultures. For production, they tapped previous collaborator Ryu Takahashi, who shared their love of city pop, eurobeat, and the melodies of J-pop artists like Maria Takeuchi. "They wanted to dig into their Japanese identity, not in a traditional sense, but in this filtered Western way", Takahashi says.
