Listen to Craft Spells' Clear-Headed Composition, "Komorebi"

FADER PREMIERE

The Japanese word "Komorebi" doesn't translate to English directly, but it essentially refers to "sunlight that's filtered through the trees." The new song from Justin Vallesteros bka Craft Spells certainly captures the pastoral poetry of that idea, as well as the introverted, nervous sensation of not being able to find the words for exactly what you're trying to say. There's a widescreen, almost orchestral quality to the composition that's audibly more clear-headed than the songs on 2011's Idle Labor, Vallesteros' breakout collection of foggy, nighttime jangle-pop. "Komorebi" is off Nausea, Craft Spells' sophomore LP, out June 10th via Captured Tracks; stream another song from that release, "Breaking The Angle Against The Tide," down below.
