“Entering the Forest” by Irezumi

The Paris-based ambient composer returns with a magical new single.

It’s been a few years since I’ve checked in with the Paris-based ambient musician who goes by Irezumi. His latest single, titled “Entering the Forest,” is a beguiling composition filled with chiming, ethereal tones and lush arrangements that make you feel like you’re passing through a portal into a magical other-world. Irezumi describes the song as “an introduction to the Forest,’ ” which hopefully means that there’s more where this came from.

Until then, there’s plenty more to check out on Irezumi’s Bandcamp page, including 2016’s Thirty (read my review) and tributes to Twin Peaks and Ernest Shackleton.
