“Ihara Kantaro”, who is known for his groovy band sound based on SOUL/POPS/AOR from the 70s and 80s, has released his first 7-inch cut with a floor-like, super strong double-sider!
The musician/producer Ihara Kantaro is known for his warm and fragile voice, his superb melodies, his sophisticated arrangements, his chord work and groovy sounds, and his authentic production, which includes writing, composing, arranging, singing, performing, mixing and mastering. From their first full-length album "C", completed in April this year after a year and a half of production with 11 guest musicians, they will release a super strong double-sider for the floor, coupling the opening number "gypsy" with groovy bass and drums and light cutting guitar and piano backing, and the mellow and sweet medium ballad "rhapsody"!
Kantaro Ihara sings the rare groove and free soul classic "I Love You" by Weldon Irvine in Japanese with lyrics translated by Ihara himself, which can be called a modern Japanese soul song. In addition to the excellent arrangement and chord work, the superb mellow tune "You Are Right" will be released on February 2 (Wed.) with a carefully crafted production that makes you examine every grain of the sound.
