Asobi Seksu set to release new album in February

A welcome back is in order for Brooklyn’s ethereal Asobi Seksu, who return to their heavily textured trademark sound with the new single “Trails,” then its parent album “Fluorescence” — their fourth — in February.

And if you haven’t tuned in to the floral 4AD-isms of multi-instrumentalist James Hanna and his angelic vocalist Yuki Chikudate, now might be the time. Especially since they’re issuing “Fluorescence” in a limited-edition. 1,500-copy run in hot pink, 180-gram vinyl (advance orders can be placed here).

Longtime producer Chris Zane was at the helm to get the duo back on track after its last “Rewolf” acoustic experiment. And as the band tells it, he had signs posted in the studio that pointed them in the proper direction, placards that read “Bold” and “Don’t overthink it.”

Backed by bassist Billy Pavone and drummer Larry Gorman, Asobi Seksu will play San Francisco March 8th.
