Track of the Day 10 – Colored Music’s ‘Heartbeat’ (1981) (Better Days)

Appearing on the Japanese outfit Colored Music’s 1981 self-titled LP on the label Better Days, ‘Heartbeat’ is a fantastic proto-type electronic new wave synth workout. Now highly sought-after, this masterpiece by Atsuo Fujimoto and Ichiko Hashimoto was recently reissued as an 7 inch single edited by Chee Shimizu, and has appeared on various compilations such as the 2016 ‘More Better Days: Avant-Wave’. We only wish Colored Music had released more great music for us to all enjoy!
