Tokyo’s Yui Onodera returns with a new edition on Room 40, Too Ne. Intimate ambient soundscapes don’t so much recede into the background as much as they become ingrained in our collective consciousness. Onodera guides tones into gently shifting into open channels where the aqueous sonics congeal into amorphous cocoons. This music feels close to the skin even if it comes from a primordial, far away place. Hues change, but the spirit of Onodera’s Too Ne is an illuminating quiet force.
Too Ne will be released by Room on June 24. Stream and pre-order below.
