Yukihiro’s compositional fingerprints
Circling back to the upcoming single, a humble border is just one of the latest contributions to Petit Brabancon’s repertoire composed by drummer Yukihiro.
As a member of Petit Brabancon, Yukihiro is known for contributing an electronic edge to the band’s distinctive musical style. He has previously showcased a captivating blend of ambient electronic sounds in the 2022 track “come to a screaming halt”, off Petit Brabancon’s first full album, Fetish. More recently, he brought us a hauntingly dispassionate array of tones in “surely”, from this year’s experimental mini-album Automata.
With these characteristics as a clue, we can only imagine what excitement is in store for a humble border!
