"Kafuku's Wife" by RULES
Our musical day begins with the melancholy synth pop gem "Kafuku's Wife" by Helsinki, Finland's RULES. A duo formed by Iiti Yli-Harja (music/vocals) and Sarra Keppola (lyircs/backing vocals/synths), they are the most recent signing to Soliti Music. Drumming was provided by producer Oskari Halsti. The guest guitarist was Esa Pottonen.
The song provides an alternative perspective on the short story Drive My Car by Haruki Murakami, and the theme combines beautifully with the music to capture the sense of loss and search for meaning.
