Yukika first popped up on my radar as the artist behind the lovely, city pop-esque throwback Neon. Cherries Jubiles may sound a bit more pedestrian at first, but stick around; there’s a payoff.

The payoff being, of course, the song’s sudden transformation into yet another city pop homage. Yukika keeps the original melody, but layers in notes of retro charm that, I admit, makes me swoon every time I hear it.
