SAWA - “RingaRinga” (2014)
New single from one of the many electro-pop artists who got a stab at the mainstream in the wake of Perfume’s landscape-shifting album GAME…and one of the many to recede from the spotlight and end up on some tiny imprint once the market decided they only really wanted one future-pop group bumrushing the charts. Which is a shame, because SAWA is pretty good overall, and “RingaRinga” is a nice synth-pop workout. Part cheerful electro-pop, part dance-floor-aiming release (that beat).
SAWA is also responsible for writing and helping arrange Especia’s “Midnight Confusion,” if you needed an extra nudge to click ‘play.’
