💐 "Complex" is finally out ! I've been waiting for this moment. I and my team worked so hard on it so I really hope you guys like it as much as I do. It would mean a lot to me if you tell me how you feel and I'd like to know which one is your favorite song. And the last thing… thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who was a part of this for all the love and support. I think I couldn't do any of this without you all. Thank you. Lots of love.💚 2nd EPの"Complex"が配信されました!今年の頭から制作し始めて、みんなに聴いてもらえる日をずっと楽しみにしてました。たくさん愛してもらえたら嬉しいです。最後に、愛を持ってこのEPに関わってくれた方々、そしていつも楽しみに待ってくれているみんな、本当にありがとう。 Credits: produced by @teppeikakuda lyrics by @friday.night.plans Mix Engineer Yu Sasaki Mastering Engineer Tamotsu Suwanai @waxalchemy photo by @184184 styled by @shun_kudo make-up @tetro_hairsalon It's just the beginning.

‘intuition’ – liz

🦋I find myself constantly trying to recreate a time in my life when I felt the most alive and safe at the same time– when I could just be a carefree dream-fueled teeny bopper.🦋My approach with this project was to lean into my authenticity, and not to chase anything anyone else was doing.🦋I’m very fluid with how I approach references and sub genres in my music, but I think this is a cohesive body of work and that’s not always easy for me to accomplish! I’ve touched upon many vibes and influences in my music to date, and I look forward to expanding that even further and continuing my narrative as an artist.🦋One of the biggest reasons why ‘Planet Y2K’ is so special to me is because it’s a culmination of a lot of work I did independently. I A&R’d and executive produced the project sonically and visually, and as someone who’s been through the insecurity-infused ringer of the music industry for basically half of my life, I’m really proud of my perseverance and confidence in my taste.🦋 I’m grateful to @mvngcstl, @awal, and my incredible creative collaborators for trusting me and helping facilitate my vision. A special thanks to @jamesorlandooo, @brianziff, and @robokid.online for breathing massive inspiration and imagination into this project. (I couldn’t have done it without you.)🦋More special thanks: @brettblackman, @drewurl, @biccchele, @yikeselou, @cajoleas, @emlygale, @yarlyle_bones, @aobeats, @charlie_is_______, @cecigofficial, @sonikku.wav, @dylanbrady, @czdoe, @groundislava, @jarinademarco, @slayyyter, @sophartso, @ravennagolden, @namasenda, @ajathekween, @thejimmyharry, @jessesaintjohn, @jcchasezofficial, @samshrieve, @cocomorier, @alexkeithchapman, @aajoseph, @kimpetras, @allgoodthingsrock, @djboboofficial, @annieabrams7, @sienree, @heatherroseharris, @vallyg_irl, @streetboi, @freakcityla, @amandapeanutt, @rxsongs, @maddecent publishing🦋
