Want to know what Exitpost dreams about? Now you have the chance to dive into the recurring dreams of the Japanese-American producer in his debut album Two Dreamers. Dreams from his childhood served as the inspiration for the 9-track album; he would wake up in Tokyo panicked, unable to return back to New York.
Listen to Two Dreamers below:
The album kicks off with “Every Day is About You,” a foreshadow as to what the rest of the album entails: a unique mixture of songs that integrate both English and Japanese lyrics, as well as regional sounds reminiscent of Japanese folk music. He also incorporated field recording taken in both Tokyo and Los Angeles, truly striving to dive into his authentic self for those listening to his music.
Other tracks on the album include collaborations with several other Asian-American artists including New York producer-singer Hanae on “New Moon Phase,” Japanese vocalist Unmo on the album title track “Two Dreamers,” and LA-based lo-fi vocalist ESAE on “You Caught the Butterflies in my Stomach.”
Earlier this fall, he released “Two Dreamers” as a single sneak peek with a music video to accompany. Check that out below!
