rouri404 shares, “I think having fun is the most important part of creating music and ‘chlorine’ reminded me of that over the past year. Going into this EP I wanted to focus heavily on the energy of the tracks and make sure they have huge high moments that seamlessly come back down to a super personal almost nostalgic melancholic feeling. We took a lot of inspiration from early 2000s pop-punk & emo and really just my overall childhood, trying to capture that raw energy and emotion of being a kid who doesn’t know what to do in life.”
With the release of ‘chlorine’, rouri404 aims to leave a lasting impression in Asia and is eagerly seeking opportunities for interviews. He aspires to connect with fans who not only share his deep love for music but also share his ambition to push the boundaries of various genres.
