"Komorebi"
Electronic


Magic!

Have you ever noticed the sunlight filtering through the leaves of a tree at just the right angle to see each ray of light in all its glory?

Well, that’s what the Japanese call Komorebi. It is an untranslatable word used to describe nostalgia and melancholy that comes with longing for something or someone that is far away or unreachable. If you’ve ever gotten really horny when your girlfriend was at work – that’s Komorebi. If you’ve ever gotten hungry for McDonald’s after seeing a TV ad and then realized you don’t get paid for a week, that’s Komorebi. If you are in love with a celebrity you know you’ll never meet, let alone get to kiss – you guessed right, Komorebi. If you need to take a huge dump and your train is delayed? That’s not Komorebi, you’re just screwed, he-he-he. 

But wait, what’s the deal with this record? Is it in fact Komorebi? Hit the play button now and let’s see (oops! let's hear, I mean). Wait, wait, not yet. Wouldn’t you like to know what inspired the track? Of course you would. Here is the link to The Watermark High’s blog post about what led to the creation of the record back in July 2020:  [read full post]. Yep, you guessed right, something to do with Covid, obviously. 

Okay hit the play button now and let’s do this. 

The first thing you’ll notice at the start of the record is it sounds like nostalgia, it’s like you are being instantly whisked away into your memories and you don’t know where you are going. What the heck right? All you wanted to do was listen to a good song, time travel wasn’t in your plans, but it’s too late. It even vaguely feels like those backward sensations you feel in the back of your heavy head when you’ve had too much to drink and you are regretting it while trying not to think of throwing up even though you know it’s coming, he-he-he (not funny at all though). Okay let’s continue – don’t throw up. As you listen to the record further you will realize a really smooth beat is unravelling before your ears and it in fact feels like it’s taking you somewhere, almost like looking into the future – that’s NOT Komorebi?! that’s the OPPOSITE of Komorebi. Now you are in a magical space between nostalgia and optimism with beautiful sounds coming at you left right and center like only The Watermark High knows how. Three blissful minutes and fifty seconds later, you’ll be in a trance, wondering how you got there and never wanting it to end. It doesn’t have to, just hit repeat and let the good time roll – over and over and over.
