Tavito Nanao -- Circus Night(サーカスナイト)


It's been over five years since I've put up a Tavito Nanao(七尾旅人)song onto the blog. As I remember, he's a singer and songwriter of a number of genres, and perhaps many of his songs don't fit into one particular genre but more into a blend of them whether it be soul, indies or electronica among others.

Maybe his 11th and penultimate single to date, "Circus Night", falls on the borderline between R&B and shoegazer. Released in November 2012, Nanao wrote and composed this tune of a heart-stopping romance that is described through analogies of circus life such as walking that tightrope, magic and clowns. There's plenty of groove in this very laidback tune that would call for an intimate evening out in a bohemian drinking joint somewhere in the quieter areas of Shibuya or Harajuku.
