Today London-based artist Hinako Omori has shared the final pre-release single from her forthcoming debut full-length album, ‘a journey…’, which comes out next Friday,March 18th through Houndstooth.

‘a journey…’ sees London-based sound engineer Omori experimenting with the physical and psychological effects of different frequencies, meditating on healing and soothing sounds and taking inspiration from the Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku, or forest-bathing. It’s a delicate and warm record, glistening with light, as Hinako’s otherworldly vocals drift over organic textures carved from field recordings and analogue electronics.

Speaking on new single “Snow”, Omori comments: “It’s the last song on the album – a love letter to anyone that might need it” and offers the song’s lyrics:

I tried to visualise
what it was like through
your eyes
But all I could see
closed in on me
the fragility
I wish I could let you know
that every passing moment
will fall like the snow
Not settling
disappearing without a trace
before you
Let me be your eyes
let me guide your light 
through the darkness
Let me be your eyes
let me shine a light
on your darkness
I promise there’s a way
