This is the second album of 11 tracks, following the first album 'Garance', which combined acoustic and digital music.
A variety of tunes spanning rock, EDM and folk. The sound quality is well thought out.
The album features a visual world of Japanese poetry with a sharpened sense of scene and interlacing time lines. It is also a glimpse of the consistent theme of 'death and rebirth'.
We hope you will enjoy this pop, catchy and somehow sad world, just by intuition.

Tomoko Shimizu (keyboard, percussion, chorus) Born in Mitaka City, Tokyo Tomoko Shimizu has studied piano, electronics, drums, percussion, and music theory since childhood, and has been involved in MIDI data production and manipulation. While exploring classical and contemporary music, she is also into house, techno, and electro music such as Denki Groove, Ken Ishii, and The Prodigy. She has released four albums, and was active as a drummer and chorus member of DRI:MOON, in 2001 - 2022. In I guess's live performances, Shimizu makes full use of two synthesizers and electronic percussion at the same time, and together with Hashimoto's acoustic yet effective guitar sound, they are known for their performance that aims at the limit of live performance of a unit of two people who dare not use sequencers. Touching each other with music is not a matter of understanding each other, but a repetition of small questions and suggestions. The origin of the band's name is that "songs" and "sounds" may be born in between.
