There are few activities that so encapsulate the fleeting joy of summer like eating ice cream with your friend on a hot sunny day. LULLATONE so aptly express the languid pleasure in sharing this perennial treat on ‘Splitting a Banana Split,’ a sweet dreamy do-wop ditty. The melifous husband-wife duo Lullatone have been crafting precious music from their home in Nagoya, Japan for over a decade. Their music is imbued with a child-like innoncence, easy and charming lack of pretension that is refreshing as a cool afternoon breeze. Notes of carribean calypso, indolent surf chords and field recordings of lapping waves and seagull ocean sprays dance along in time to the sunshine pop melodies. This low-key kawaii bedroom pop moves with a steady, mellow groove that retains an endearing intimacy, filling you with that fuzzy, warm feeling you get after a long fulfilling day out with your friends or family. Get their new album Summer Songs, that perfect seasonal soundtrack for outdoor excursions or afternoon siestas, and then explore their deep discography – a seemingly endlress trove of serene lullabies and merry melodies .
