OKADA ~ Floating Away From the World

Rain falls, a lucid rain, clearing everything. OKADA‘s music feels like this: a steady and uninterrupted stream of cleansing rain, washing away the collective grime with a shower of natural purity. The weather affects people in different ways. Sometimes, an emotional
