To Stand Still at the Speed of Light (Hikari No Hayasa De Tatazunde)
- Sweet Dreams Press (Sweet Dreams Press)
Three years in the making, the sixth album by Shota Terai's solo project GOFISH presents 11 tracks to further explore the creation of authentic folk rock that candidly reveals the singer's distinctive originality. Supported by a fresh set of collaborators including veteran musicians Tetsuro Fujimaki (drums), Guitarow Hakaba (bass), Nakayama Tsutomu (keys), and a host of other guest musicians, Hikari no hayasa de tatazunde (Standing Still With the Speed of Light) captures the joy of working with others and of discovering gems in layered sonic textures. With an immediacy that evokes a treasure-trove of emotions while maintaining the wafting, ethereal sound he is known for, Terai Shota's continued evolution of songcraft is a delightful addition to his ever-expanding collection of contemplative recordings.
