“SATSURIKU Rejects” is a piano-laden, horn-heavy track with a drum and bass back beat and soft female vocals placed second stage. If you are familiar with earlier tracks from PLANET PIMP, (Storm, Fantastic Planet), you’ll recognize this as a groovier and more soulful departure from their usual organized artful chaos.
