“Ethereal froth scudding across the sky. The sunset cleanses today, leaving it glowing. Shining water, silent waves.”

ASPIDISTRAFLY’s anticipated first full album draws references to Banana Yoshimoto’s literary classic novella  “Moonlight Shadow”, weaving through the solitary atmosphere of the novel with dreamlike descriptions of time, space and season.

With nine tracks combine acoustic instrumentation, soft vocal textures and binaural field recordings, “i hold a wish for you” is a journey through an existential universe painted with emphatic observations of daily microcosms. Vocalist and songwriter April Lee creates the artwork and photography together with Kobe-based artist Rika M.

PRESS

“宝石のように輝き、木漏れ日のように優しいアルバムがシンガポールより到着。”

— Bounce Magazine, Tower Records Japan

“Its not easy to pin down ASPIDISTRAFLY’s music into a specific genre, which is a good thing. Can you imagine Richard Chartier playing dreamy pop music? With some female vocalist? I’d say ASPIDISTRAFLY is microsound and pop. Very refined.”

— Vital Weekly, The Netherlands

“Refined and robust, these well organized aural assemblages give ample animation and seriousness to the light and prosaic elements of the everyday.”

— Cyclic Defrost, Australia

“Very atmospheric, very innocent, very calm and relaxing. Fans of Sigur Ros and Eluvium take note.” 8/10

— Foxy Digitalis, USA
