BLPRS are a 4-piece rock band out of Kyoto, Japan. Brothers Satoshi and Fumihiko Sasa grew up moving around Belgium, Dubai, and the U.S. and prefer writing songs in English than in their native language of Japanese. Stepping away from their comfort zone, BLPRS enlisted electronic producer HAMACIDE and pioneering sound designer Yosi Horikawa to reshape their creative process. "Isle" bumps like a dance record while elevating their rock sound.
This is the soundtrack to a dream.
There’s a story. A beginning, middle and end. Heroines. Villains. Bridges. Chases. Evil twins. Children. Drugs. And hamburgers.
Nobody really likes hearing other people explain their dreams. So Tokyo artist Crunchybird made this instead.
"The Incident at Fallthrough Bridge" is a love-letter to his creative influences. It's an homage to the threaded concept albums from bands like Pink Floyd and Neutral Milk Hotel. It's a nod to the fantastic, genre-bending storytelling from creators like Stephen King and Christopher Nolan. And it’s a hug on the fearless creativity of noise artists like John Zorn and Boredoms.
Recommended if you like dreamy wordless acoustic folk, uncomfortable beats, epic instrumental post-rock, speedy pop punk, experimental noise, screamy hardcore, children’s choruses and tidy resolutions.
