Pop, rock, pop-punk, idol and J-Pop are some common descriptions of self-produced Tokyo-based artist Saki Chitose, best known as Double And, stylised as 2.
Since her debut Double And album back in 2015, Saki has gone on to release a number of singles and EPs. She is well known for her dynamic and fun live performances and her distinct vocals that keep all the intensity with tightly choreographed dance routines.
In 2016, Double And began to learn the guitar, and has incorporated acoustic playing in her live sets, something her fans have enjoyed in the multiple live streams she has performed over the last year.
In a break with idol tradition, Saki has written all the songs on her latest five track EP, “Nisoku De Hokou”, and has worked with various Japanese and international musicians to produce tracks with elements of J-pop, modern rock and punk; each song showcasing Saki’s dynamic voice that we all know and love.
With lyrics and guitar tones representing growth, friendship, and celebrating youth with catchy melodies, each song rings true to Saki’s life experiences.
Saki – “For a few years now I’ve been writing lyrics and music and this time, I’ve successfully put together a full EP of self-composed songs.
This is the first time for me to compose all the tracks so I was a little worried, but I had a lot of fun making this EP! I felt that it’s helped me to develop my skills as well. Since it was self-produced, I learned that there are still many things that I can’t do by myself, but there were many people that helped me.
I hope that as many people as possible will enjoy Double And’s new EP and songs.
Thanks to all the fans who always support me!”
“Nisoku De Hokou” will be released worldwide on the 10th of July, 2021.
