Ukiyo is an electronic artist out of Western Australia and recently the Perth artist teamed up with Sydney duo Chymes on Ukiyo’s new single ‘Go‘, a song essentially about “fixing relationships”, explains Ukiyo.
Going into detail about the aesthetics of Go, Ukiyo explains how initial idea of Go came after reminiscing about his first trip to Melbourne to perform. “It was my first Ukiyo show outside of my hometown and the first time I’d flown for ages.”
“Being up there is always a harsh reminder of how small we are.. the idea was centred around a feeling of adventure and the possibility of happiness out of sadness.”
About the story of Go, Ukiyo expands on the above statement about how it is “about fixing relationships, whether that be with yourself, someone you love, or something you love.”
Coming off the release of Something Like This, Calling (featuring Your Girl Pho), Cold Feet and many other hits throughout 2017 and 2016, Ukiyo has returned with another banger full of deep, atmospheric vibes that glide the song’s story along to a nice pace and the added bonus of Chymes’ vocals work well in the world of Ukiyo’s sound.
