Single review: Post Coal Prom Queen ft. Macaroom – Zou

This playful and glitchy new track from Post Coal Prom Queen is the second of their collaborations with Japanese electro-pop band Macaroom – the first being the excellent ‘Body of Water’, released earlier this year. This time Macaroom singer Emaru’s Japanese language vocal takes centre stage, with Lily’s delicately whispering voice teasing a gossamer thread of narrative. To non Japanese speakers/listeners, ‘Zou’ (象) is the Japanese word for ‘elephant’ – I’m guessing the song is about an elephant.

It’s a beautiful track, furnished with plenty of little sonic sprites with which to feed your ears. A proper headphones experience.

‘Zou’ will be released on 15th September.
