Jakob Ogawa and Clairo have teamed up to create something rather special in their new collaborative single ‘You Might Be Sleeping’. It comes on the back of Ogawa’s breakout singles ‘All Your Love’ and ‘Let It Pass’. These singles introduced Jakob’s aural fingerprint to the world, one which he seems to be building and expanding on with this new record.
It’s a light and dreamy journey through a clear moment in time, presenting the listener with a brief window into the story that the pair weave. ‘You Might Be Sleeping’ runs relatively short, at under three minutes, but this is most certainly a case of less is more; simple instrumentation is paired with dulcet melodies that carry the listener softly along.
