Los Angeles-based artist Chaz Cardigan has debuted his undeniably catchy new track, “Rashomon”. The single blends elements of indie-pop, folk, dance, and classic rock to create a captivating sound fans will love. “Rashomon”, the Japanese word for “dispute”, is also the title of a well-known movie that explores the concept of truth, just as Chaz Cardigan does in this single.
The song opens with a fast-paced piano and a dynamic drum beat that will immediately put listeners on the edge of their seats. The energetic guitars complement Chaz Cardigan’s upbeat and somewhat distorted vocal delivery. Even through all this energy, the thoughtful lyrics still shine through, addressing what it means to owe someone the truth, and what the truth actually is. The result of all this is a pensive track that’s full of life from beginning to end. You can listen here.
The Kentucky native has racked up over 20 million streams and we can definitely see (and hear) why. “Rashomon” serves as the lead single from his upcoming album via indie label AntiFragile Music, and we can’t wait to hear what comes next. While you wait for his next offering, you can catch him performing live out west in September.
