Up-and-coming indie pop talent Yoyo Nagase drops luscious production “I hate my roommate,” shining a light on his melodic vocals which gently floats over an upbeat and summery instrumentation that has us reaching for the replay button over and over again.
Coming to life during a whale watching trip in Iceland and drawing from the dread of going home from vacation, the peppy number is sprinkled with a sense of uncertainty that’s perfectly offset by a bubbling excitement at seeing his roommates again.
With cheeky lyrics about how much he hates his roommates because of how amazing they are, the track is framed with a good-natured lyrical banter and innocence weaving seamlessly through a joyous soundscape.
Having found comfort in music during his growing up years, the heart of Nagase’s artistry lies in his ability to turn simple experiences from his daily life into heartfelt relatable snippets that strike a chord across generations of music lovers – a feat he once again achieves with this sweet ode to his roommates.
