One of our favorite releases so far this year has been Russian pop experimentalist and Academy alumna NV’s exquisite ‘Binasu’ album, which came out on Orange Milk Records in February. Inspired by the adventurous spirit of ’80s Japanese synth pop, NV demonstrated her equal knack for catchy melodies and intricate arrangements.
Given her felicitous channeling of the likes of YMO and Mariah, it is only right that NV is now releasing a special Japanese CD version of her album. “Konicchiwaa” is one of the two exclusive tracks contained on this version and it features fellow RBMA alumna Deradoorian, who just wrapped up a stint as studio team member at the Montréal Academy.
“It’s a true collab track,” NV says. “We were playing synths together, Angel came up with a bass line and a solo, I made an arpeggiator and other synths and I also asked her to play guitar randomly. In the end I just cut that and pitched it, turning it into a solo. There’s also lots of laughter and random voices saying greetings in different languages, and in the end we decided to make “konichiwa” the main greeting and turn it into the chorus. I think Angel’s voice is perfect. I could never do something like that. She sounds like a real Japanese girl!”
