Japan Is Calling – Discover Young Wolves YUZAME RADIO And Their Debut Single ‘AFTERGLOW – 残照’

Works faster and harder than caffeine

16 Dember 2022

Band: YUZAME RADIO – 湯冷めラジオ
Who: 4 shoegaze-alt-rock-inspired youngsters
from Japan. They formed only this year.

The music is always tinged with a hint of sadness, and singer
Hakuʼsvoice is full of elongation and sentiment, which is one of
the attractions of our music.

Debut single: AFTERGLOW – 残照

Hino (vocals/guitar): “This is the first song I wrote in my life. I named
it Afterglow with the hope that even if you and I are gone, the fact that
we met in this world will remain, even if only a little.

TUTV: They’re young, they’re hungry, they’re ambitious. Well, all bands start that way, some make it, and some don’t. Anyway, these vivacious juveniles hit the scene with this jangly guitar pop reverie getting really intense along its electrifying path. Lyrically, it’s quite remarkable to touch a not-so-obvious theme (see English lyrics below) when their life looks eternal at the moment. Kudos to Yuzame Radio. The future looks bright.

English Lyrics

Just stay alive. Stay alive.
Even if we never see each other again.

Menstruation two weeks late.
A belly band sent by my mom.
You, whose name is Dawnlight.
I hope you will always be illuminated.
I will bring an end to the six years of sentimentality.

It’s OK if I can’t go home like this anymore.
It’s OK if the train never comes.

Say thank you a thousand times.
Tell me over and over that I did a great job.

The city of Okayama with light shining through.
Your transparent eyes.

I will bring an end to the six-year love affair.
I dive in a single strand into the sea at dawn.
It’s OK if I can’t go home like this anymore.
It’s OK if the train never comes.

Say good night every night.
I labor over and over again that you did a great job.

Run, as fast as you can without despair catching up with you.

Just stay alive. Stay alive.
Just a little more. Stay here.

Turn on the radio
