All summer long, the chiptune maximalists in Anamanaguchi are releasing a string of one-off singles, a bit of consolation for anyone who was expecting to catch them on tour over the next few months. Today, they're offering the second, a massive barnstormer called "Kei." The track splices POCHI's vocals, initially recorded during a Tokyo writing session back in 2015, with a completely retooled melody. The effect is something entrancing and addictive.

"Kei" follows Anamanaguchi's last summer single, "Styla," which dropped at the end of June. They've set up a whole website for the series, which teases that six more tracks are coming over the next few weeks. Check it out and sign their guestbook over here, and watch the video for "Kei" above.
