Brooklyn trio Japan Soul new single Transparent is exactly that: a lighthearted funky blue-eyed soul song. It's a step up from their debut Plastic Utopia, which was just a bit too smooth. There is even a bit of rock guitar (Armani not denim).
Jason Paul: vocals, guitars, bass, programming
David Rozner: percussion, arrangements and guitars
Dave Lipp: saxophones, bass, eclectic instruments
Transparent is released thru Wealth & Taste Music.
