2 in stock
The dreamy indie pop band, “Other Too Pure Songs” depicted the innocent story like a novel of J.D. Salinger with their indie pop. The members of the disbanded “Pastel Blue” finally gathered and released the limited 7” (300 copies).
Masami Tsuchiya of “Wallflower” met vocalist Kasumi Hasegawa in their teenage. Then Nico of “Ladyflash” and HAPPY of “Post Modern Team” joined to the group. They formed the band “Pastel Blue” under the influence of the indie rock band, “slowdive” also early “Supercar” and “Sarah Records”. The band left the masterpieces of “Younger Saints” and “Cerulean” in short period. However, they came to halt their activities for the various reasons.
Masami Tsuchiya gathered other members to start activities as “Wallflower”. Soon he received the favorable offer from Kip Berman of “The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart” and carried out the support for “The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart” Japan tour. They succeeded the support for “Alpaca Sports” Japan tour and also succeeded in the Taiwan Live sponsored by “Manic Sheep”. Furthermore in 2015, they appeared on NYC Popfest spectacularly. Nico and HAPPY became well known as they had continued their energetic activities in Kansai indie scene. On the other hand, Hasegawa is said that she alone had written and stocked her home demonstration songs for several years. Her demonstration songs became the trigger that attracted the former band members and put out the new sound. In the trailer which Hasegawa edited, we can catch a glimpse of the pale color sense which “Other Too Pure Songs” entrusted in their sound and glimpse of the afterimage of their “Pastel Blue” period.
“Other Too Pure Songs” is the new band that the former members of “Pastel Blue” gathered again and formed on the different concept from that of “Pastel Blue” in the winter of 2014. They will release “Twilight e.p.” from Fastcut Records. In “Twilight e.p.”, Hasegawa played guitar and vocal part and three faint and fragile indie pop songs are recorded. These songs are under the influence of the indie pop like The Pastels, Comet Gain or Tullycraft.
New mix of “These Are The Days I Forgot To Write Down” released on SoundCloud in advance, Sentimental song “Sometimes Reach For The Stars” recorded on the Christmas compilation from “Miles Apart Records” and brand new song “Sunday”. These three songs are recorded on the disc. The girly jacket illustration was newly drawn by Amanda Åkerman of Alpaca Sports who had been featured on the new song of moscow club that provided the hot topic. Also the vinyl is clear pink vinyl spec.
