When I first heard Cliff Fernando’s debut single, Here Goes It, a couple of months ago, I had pegged them as warm, chillwave pop. Earlier tonight, Cliff Fernando released a new jam titled Japanese Kirose. Two songs in, and these guys are already branching out into new territory. The chill part is definitely kept in tact, but that’s about it. Unlike Here Goes It’s shoegaze, indie pop sound, Japanese Kirose comes off sounding more like experimental R&B and hip-hop. I was delightfully surprised, and I totally respect Cliff Fernando for not limiting themselves to just one style. Their debut album is planned to be released sometime this upcoming winter. Hopefully, Cliff Fernando will continue to showcase a variety of genres within their music.
