Kubota got experimental with his indie-pop hip hop single, ‘Nothing for Today’


LA-born and raised Asian-American artist Kubota found his signature sound in a fusion of hip hop and indie pop, the perfect introduction to his sound is his latest single, Nothing for Today, that captures relatable apathy, productivity guilt and that inescapable feeling of being over faced by reality.

Trappy 808s may feature in Nothing for Today, but, refreshingly, they are far more than the main course percussion-wise. The trap beats work around 8-bit style chiptune electronica to create a bed for Kubota’s endearingly deadpan vocals.

The Pacific Records signed artist is steadily racking up the streams with his prolific rate of new releases. Nothing for Today is just one of the singles released ahead of his upcoming EP that promises to be an evocatively eccentric playlist staple.

Nothing for Today will officially release on June 4th. Check out Kubota via his website or Facebook.
