Gecko&Tokage Parade: Perfect Spring

One listen for this one that got broken up a bit by a motorbike.
I think I was trying to just write about the song and describe it without imagery, but something seeped in and I feel it helped. There’s kind of a sense of change in the writing which captures the sense of change on the song, or at least that’s what I believe.

Gecko&Tokage Parade’s “Perfect Spring” is from Next Border.

I hope you enjoy.

A beat plays out steady and with space. Has a pause before it resumes and keys and bass come in. They are gentle and they pause before the next motion.

On the next motion bass moves a little more but all stays gentle. Come the next one and guitar echoes on a steady repetition above the other instrumentation. Soon bass takes on more notes and gets a little livelier, though remains gentle.

Eventually this stops and in the space sounds rest and let the gentleness expand before implying a build and continuing once more.

In this new state the sounds draw out and compress in a similar way to before, and all is slow, but they seem to drift more. They seem to watch something above and daydream, and feel some sort of joy and sadness, and it’s tender and sweet, and easy. It all floats on and heads off to where it must, and soon it suddenly stops and leaves the percussion on its own to close things off at the song’s end.
