RiLF, the Tokyo-based alternative rock band's first album, Ferris Wheel, features lovely vocals, band sounds, and beautiful strings. RiLF are Takahiro Kido, Yuki Murata, and Takahiro Matsue, who are also members of Anoice. They have also been joined by Calu, the vocalist of Matryoshka, at the beginning of 2010.
The album contains some unforgettable masterpieces such as "Pray for the Piano," a lovely tune which uses many classical musical instruments, and "Mint Tea," which was recorded by adding a beautiful orchestra to their band sound.
The fleeting melodies created by RiLF will bring you to tears. These awesome talents have participated in tours with artists such as Dakota Suites (UK), sayCet (France), and Stina (Australia).
For fans of Radiohead, Sigur Rós, and Mogwai.
