Hey Yah Hey (lyrics) Sometimes it almost feels like the time away was never real Recall the mountain trail with the helicopters overhead we spent a year dreaming up ways that we could dislocate when we finally woke up we were gone and in a different place it was a year when we moved so fast it felt like days something's changed forever never I say Hey Yah Hey! Rewind we're right back here with a fever to depart again Outside on tiny islands floating on the current miles and miles we spent a year dreaming up ways that we could dislocate when we finally woke up we were gone and in a different place it was a year when we moved so fast it felt like days something's changed forever never I say Hey Yah Heh! Make some noises raise your voice lift your tired hands ©2013 Japan Soul

Watch the video for Hey Yah Hey: www.youtube.com/watch

Video Synopsis: A group of young artists wander the streets of Paris while under the continuous surveillance of mysterious drones. The group cleverly finds ways to assert their creative identities and foil the spying drones. Although the video plays like an 80s apocalypse scenario the reality it presents is, disturbingly, not fiction.

Constantly evolving, Japan Soul is a wandering vacuum of ideas influenced by styles as diverse as art rock, sophisti-pop, funk and electronic dance music. Japan Soul seeks to create transcendental music that synthesizes art, dissent and euphoria through popular music.

Japan Soul’s upcoming LP, titled Plastic Utopia, is an artful protest of the times. “The album is mostly a compendium of my thoughts on these troubled times,” says Jason Paul. “The conceptual premise of Plastic Utopia is that we have slipped into an apocalyptic alternate universe caused by a rift in time that began around the year 2000. 911, Iraq, the great recession…it feels like in the 90s we were on course to avoid all these terrible calamities. Things are no longer as they should be. On Plastic Utopia, Japan Soul gives voice to the artistic resistance of this dystopian world. The songs are like landscape vignettes of this moment in history. Time can move backwards and forwards and I think our eclectic pop reflects that.”
