If you don’t dance to this song, then…*insert negative comment.* With only two songs to their online name, HICARI is a new group that is establishing themselves as masters of the synth-pop craft. With soaring instrumentation and equally floating and gorgeous vocals (courtesy of the wildly talented Shayaan Oshidar), “Consumed” is a song that you feel deep within your veins; it’s a song that wraps you up and entangles you in the complex simplicity that makes you just feel good and feel hopeful. It’s 4 minutes and 12 seconds that reminds you that you’re human and that it’s ok to feel vulnerable and welcome that wave of emotion that’s been hiding on your horizon.

Lyrically, “Consume” is about not fitting in within the world around you. It’s about feeling isolated while being surrounded by a crowd of people. The band describes the song below.

“Consumed” is a song that depicts the loneliness you can feel when you are surrounded by people who aren’t like you, it’s a cry for help to find someone who understands you, as you feel you can no longer go on pretending to be someone that you aren’t. As a band, the sound and meaning of the song reflects our energy and emotion, something that will be prominent in all of our songs to come.

Put your dancing shoes on, make yourself a little vulnerable, and give “Consumed” by HICARI a listen below. Then patiently wait with me for more music by this insanely talented group of friends.
