Sawa Angstrom is an electronic music unit based in Kyoto. They have released four EPs in 2019. Now, they will release four consecutive months of chill singles amidst the chaos of 2020. Those have been included in official playlists on streaming platforms and have received a lot of attention from the worldwinde music media.

The 4th single is "Traveling Waitress". It's like walking across multiple universes as the oriental sequence transitions from a rippling four-on-the-floor beat to a disco-tinged funky beat. It's a dramatic number to end on.

Following on from the third single "Plastic Moon", this exotic cover art painted by illustrator Paisen. It represents a unique cybernetic urban landscape.
