Listen: Craft Spells’ charming new single “Komorebi”

Advertisement

    On June 10th, dream-pop troubadour Justin Paul Vallesteros, a.k.a. Craft Spells, returns with his new album, Nausea, through Captured Tracks. The 10-track effort follows 2012’s Gallery EP and marks his first full-length since 2011’s Idle Labor.

    Picking up right where March’s lovely “Breaking the Angle Against the Tide” left off, “Komorebi” is a sweet listen, laced with charming synths and honeyed strings. Given the song’s glowing warmth, the Japanese word “Komorebi” — which roughly translates as “sunlight that’s filtered through the trees” — is a more than perfect choice for a title. Tune in below (via FADER).

    01. Nausea
    02. Komorebi
