水的聲音 我不要聽 我不敢聽 劃過身體的叮嚀 水有記憶 記住相遇 卻帶走努力維持的清醒   我沒有跟著你的心意走吧 沒有要記住你心裡說的話 一直盯著你踏過的浪花 我被關在耳裡綿延的海浪   遠方的聲音 又 傳來了回應 遠方的聲音    我沒有跟著你的心意走吧 沒有要記住你心裡說的話 沒有跟著你的心意走吧 我遺留在你心裡 開了花


コロナ禍の中リリースされたニューシングル「氷山」がSpotify Taiwanでパワープッシュされ、ニューシングルのリリースツアーは軒並みソールドアウトを記録。今年結成10周年を迎える台湾のアコースティックユニットFour Pens(四枝筆)と、日本を代表する世界最高峰のサウンドアーティストである鈴木昭男のアシスタントを務めた孤高のギタリスト山崎昭典、ヴィンテージ機材で多種多様なサウンドを奏で、アジアを中心とした世界各国での公演・ファッションショーや映像作品の音楽を制作するdrowsinessの新ユニット「AD」によるコラボシングル「潮隙」が今回リリースされる。

「潮隙 Spindrift」は、京都府・丹後半島の日本海の表情に着想を経て作曲され、2014年頃から台湾での公演やアーティストとのコラボレーションを行っていたdrowsinessがFour Pensの楽曲アレンジや活動に共感し、潮隙 Spindriftでのコラボレーションをオファーしたことにより実現した。

ファーストシングルとなる今作は、今年で結成10周年を迎え、台湾のインディーシーンで根強い人気を誇るアコースティックユニットFour Pensをゲストに迎え、京都・台湾で制作された。ミックス・マスタリングは山崎昭典の海のエチュードのミックスも担当した大城真、アートワークはdrowsinessの全アートワークを手掛け、近年MUTEKやNHK福岡放送局開局90年×ADAA関連イベントでのソロパフォーマンスを始め、BUMP OF CHICKEN TOUR 2019 aurora arkでの映像制作や、RADWIMPSのLight The LightのMV制作にも携わる画家の中山晃子が担当した。

Their new single "Iceberg" was released in the midst of the Corona disaster, and was pushed hard on Spotify Taiwan.
The release tour for the new single was sold out at every stop. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the formation of Four Pens, a Taiwanese acoustic unit, and Akinori Yamazaki, a lone guitarist who served as an assistant to Akio Suzuki, the world's foremost sound artist representing Japan. The new single "Spindrift" is the result of a collaboration between AD and Akinori Yamazaki.

Spindrift" was composed based on the expression of the Sea of Japan in the Tango Peninsula of Kyoto Prefecture. drowsiness, which has been performing in Taiwan and collaborating with artists since 2014, sympathized with the music arrangements and activities of Four Pens and offered to collaborate with them on Spindrift. The first single, "Spindrift," was released on May 12, 2012.

This first single was produced in Kyoto and Taiwan with the guest band Four Pens, an acoustic unit that celebrates its 10th anniversary this year and boasts a strong following in the Taiwanese indie scene. Makoto Oshiro, who also mixed and mastered Akinori Yamazaki's Etude of the Sea, did all the artwork for drowsiness, and in recent years has given solo performances at MUTEK, NHK Fukuoka Station 90th Anniversary x ADAA related events, as well as at BUMP OF CHICKEN In recent years, he has been involved in solo performances at events related to MUTEK and NHK Fukuoka Broadcasting Station's 90th year x ADAA, as well as video production for BUMP OF CHICKEN's TOUR 2019 aurora ark, and music video production for RADWIMPS' Light The Light.
