Good Fortune: Talking Inside Music And Tasteful Collabs With CHAI
“[Wink] is a perfect tasting course… a full tasting course”
Over three albums, Japanese punk act CHAI have brought a high-energy blend of punk, RnB and dance music together while deconstructing the standards of beauty and cuteness that are prevalent in Japanese culture. On their new album WINK (a recent Triple R Album Of The Week) they leaned further into their funkier and softer influences and worked with outside producers for the first time. Yuuki and Mana chat to Jazz (via a translator) about how working on the album during lockdown brought out their softer influences and why they broadened their sonic and collaborative horizons for LP3. image credit: Jazz Feldy.
