Mei Semones Unveils New Single ‘Tegami’

    The 23-year-old Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter and guitarist Mei Semones has released a new single, ‘Tegami’. Check it out along with a live version of the track below.

    “‘Tegami’ was my first time experimenting with Bossa Nova style music in odd meters,” Semones explained in a statement. “It’s a love song. My partner likes to write me letters, but I’m not very good at writing letters back. So instead I wrote this song, hence the name of the song ‘Tegami’ which means ‘letter’ in Japanese. I think the range of style is really noticeable in this song, and it’s one of our more ambitious string arrangements with lots of intricate lines & textures.”

    ‘Tegami’ will appear on Semones’ Bayonet Records debut, Kabutomushi, which is out April 5, alongside the previously released ‘Inaka’.
