This was originally to appear on the Opalińska & Whates album Lumière, but we decided against it. The main reason we opted to leave it off is because we we wanted to keep the album super-concise and this felt a little out of place and perhaps weak next to the rest of the rep. Also, the timing is a bit off here and there and we we speed up through the take. That sort of annoyed us at the time. Still, on its own it's a nice sounding track and we thought some of you might be interested in hearing it.
It's our arrangment of the track ‘Alone in Kyoto’ from the Air album Talkie Walkie. It featured in the film Lost in Translation.
