18-year-old Australian wunderkind Japanese Wallpaper made a significant splash with his euphoric self-titled EP released earlier this year. Tracks like "Breathe In" and "Forces" have burned up Soundcloud and amassed over 3 M streams on Spotify. His EP featured 4 collaborations and one solo song, "Arrival" completely led by Strum. Following Japanese Wallpaper, he released another solo track, "Cocoon" which is a dazzling vocal led track. A light drum machine and delicate cosmic music bed carry Strum's vocals, bringing focus to the poetic lyrics and creating a blissful atmospheric sensation.
Following the June release, he shares the visuals with direction from Hamish Mitchell and cinematography from David Mckinnar. It's captivating minimalism, letting the beautiful symmetry of nature and architecture accompany the glistening allure of the single. "Cocoon" is available now via Zero Through Nine.
