Older track that recently popped up on my playlist that really seems to work well on a Monday morning and get the week started off on the right track. Mainly because it seems that no matter what you're doing when you hear "Bright Whites", there's a pretty good chance that you'll stop what you're doing and start tapping your toes to this one and trying to sing along, not knowing that half the song is actually sung in Japanese. No worries though, since the lyrics tend to reveal a slightly darker side to this seemingly happy and upbeat song, it might be better off if you just whistle along for your and everyone else whose around sake. And if you're wondering why this song may sound so familiar, that's because it recently appeared on the new Windows 8: Sign in with a Smile commercial. Check out the song and video (which features over fifty hidden in plain sight idioms) and grab the new album 151a through the iTunes link below...
Also, KEXP featured this song last year as their song of the day, which is still available to download for free here.
