For your weekend listening stack, Takénobu returns with a new song titled “Got to Get By.”

This latest release is the third single from the upcoming self-released album, Always Leave a Note, due out September 3.

Here, singer and cellist Nick Ogawa and wife, singer and violin player Kathryn Koch, strike a balance between their music’s dramatic pop inflections and the sense of lingering unease that came with life amid a global pandemic. Naturally, the title serves as a mantra of endurance and catharsis. The strength of their songwriting and their earnest delivery also show off new depth and direction, offering a hint at the direction of the new album.
