Wagakki Band’s fifth album Otonoe will soon be out on April 25 and they have a short preview of the snowy music video Sasameyuki (細雪) alongside their announcement:

As usual, Wagakki Band will be serving a solid course of traditional Japanese instruments laced with the powerful yet dynamic voice of Suzuhana Yuko, and it’s great to see a band who is actively and consistently producing albums on top of live activities.

The majority of the tracks are fast-paced energetic songs that lift a fighting spirit, but track six Doppo (独歩) is a gentle melody accompanied by strings that I personally really look forward to hearing the full length of. Have a listen to the preview of the album and let us know which is your favourite track:
