If you’ve been following this series of articles for a while now then you’ll know that I’ve been an admirer of Passepied for quite a long time. Their use of piano and less conventional time signatures and guitar riffs were what drew me to the band in the first place and to be honest, their last couple of releases while good were starting to drift away from those things a little. Well, the band appear to have reconnected with their more experimental side for new mini-album “Neon to Tora”, with several songs that really caught my ear. Some people might disagree with my interpretation, and Passepied are still a Piano Pop group at the end of the day so it’s not like they got too crazy with this one either. Still, I got some cool piano pieces and even some fuzzed out guitar riffs so I’m cool with it. “Makka Mecca” is a particular favorite from this release for me, along with title track “Neon to Tora” and “Orange” for their 80s Synth-Pop influences. There really is some nice variety on offer here.
