The latest indie folk rock from Tokyo: ROTH BART BARON has released their new album "Loud color(s) & Silence Festival" While the album is digital released now.
The vinyl will be released on November 11.
Tokyo-based ROTH BART BARON are one of the leading bands of Japan’s vibrant indie scene. The band is the solo project of singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Masaya Mifune. With a band of seven and sometimes up to ten people, ROTH BART BARON have regularly played venues in Tokyo and all over Japan and have performed in the U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Mongolia, China, Thailand and Taiwan. ROTH BART BARON’s previous albums have also been welcomed with a warm reception: In April 2020, the band was awarded the grand prize at Japan's alternative music awards, <APPLE VINEGAR - Music Award -2020>.
The album features several tracks mixed by Dan Carey (Kate Tempest, Black Midi) and Tim Pennells (Floating Points) and was mastered by
Chris Athens (Drake, Kehlani). The track "EVE" features up-and-coming Tokyo-based singer HANA.
"Loud color(s) & Silence Festival", written, composed and recorded in 2020, centers around urging questions in these challenging times: What is the role of music without live concerts and music festivals and limited social interaction? How can we collect fresh colors into our
hearts for long and dark days in a frozen world? Mifune’s soft vocals and poetical lyrics and the band’s keen eye for visuals and aesthetics may give some hints.
On November 11, the vinyl and a limited edition special package of vinyl will be released. The special package will be a limited edition of 100, with a gorgeous binding and art book.Available at their online store.
