Listening to a new Kishi Bashi song is like taking a naked plunge into a chilly pool—it's buoyant energy immediately flushes over you with overwhelming emotional and physical stimulation. This invigorating experience was felt throughout the singer-songwriter-violinist's debut album 151a two years ago, and we've long awaited his looping titillation ever since.
Last August, we stumbled upon a new Kishi track entitled "Philosophize In It! Chemicalize With It!", which provided a far too brief recall to his infectious sound. But today, it was finally announced that this single will be taking the lead on his forthcoming sophomore LP Lighght, due out May 13th on Joyful Noise. Listen below:
