New track and video ‘Deep Down’ featuring Japanese artist AAAMYYY announced

The Sen Morimoto LP releases October 23rd via his own Sooper Records

Sen Morimoto has dropped ‘Deep Down’ the next track from his forthcoming self-titled album (out 10/23 on Sooper Records) featuring Japanese electronic artist AAAMYYY. The two developed a musical chemistry when they toured together in Japan last year. The bilingual standout track is a dreamy synth-soaked cut in which the deceptive danceiness of AAAMYYY’s Tokyo based electro-pop community comes to bear on the sound of contemporary Chicago intrinsic to Morimoto’s pioneering production. 

AAAMYYY is the only artist to be featured on Morimoto’s album who is not from his tight-knit Chicago group of musicians (which includes Lala LalaNNAMDÏKIANAJoseph ChilliamsQari, along with National Youth Poet Laureate Kara Jackson).

The two met last year when they played shows together on Morimoto’s headlining tour in Japan. They and their bandmates quickly became friends and bonded over shared musical sensibilities. Speaking about their time on tour together, Morimoto says: “The band and I were ecstatic watching AAAMYYY’s first set with us in Tokyo. Getting to know her and her band on tour helped us realize how many likeminded young creatives and music lovers there are in Japan who we can connect with through music.”

Accompanying the track is a music video directed by KAINA. A home video aesthetic shows Morimoto and AAAMYYY plunking around their quarantine apartments during the age of the internet. About the video, KAINA says “I wanted it to feel really simple… but also chaotic and kind of poking fun at cool kid internet aesthetic that we as a society partake in to some degree on our socials since the song is about digging deeper.”
