#songoftheday / REVIEW: 4TE: “MORE”

4TE — pronounced Forte/for-tay — is a new Japanese pop group based out of the U.S.  and if there’s any justice in this world they’ll get a major label deal for Japan and become the J-Pop megastars they deserve to be.  Because, let me tell you, their debut single, “MORE,” is one of the very best J-Pop tunes I’ve heard during recent years.  They’re big fans of two of my favorite J-Pop acts, capsule and Perfume, and they proudly wear those influences on their collective sleeve during the synthy, bass-heavy song that’s primed for dance clubs but infectious enough for pop radio.  If I’d heard this song without knowing who’d produced it, I would have guessed it was capsule’s own Yasutaka Nakata, as it has his flair for layering lush electronic sounds over gigantic beats and uber-catchy hooks, giving you something that is immediately irresistible that also reveals itself in different ways the more you listen to it and notice all the details.  Bravo.

I will have more coverage of 4TE on OtakuDX in the near future, including an exclusive interview.
