Stargazing: melodrama - Sukima Switch

Timeless songs should be remembered, even if they happen to be released 13 years ago. It's hard to imagine this song has been in my library for such a long time, but even listening to it today, it puts me into a deep thought.

Sukima Switch is a duo that really know their stuff when it comes to catchy, memorable music. Their often lighthearted songs wash over you like a calm wave at the beach, but sometimes it's their slower compositions that really hit hard. Today's song, 'melodrama', is one such track. Laying back on heavier instruments and really bringing forth the vocals and piano, it's one of my favourites from them. Hopefully you enjoy it too!
