A debut piece, ‘Scribbles of the First’ is a walk through Asian Indie Rock singer-songwriter ‘kotoji’s time capsule of her early twenties – a self-reflection of her youthful vulnerability and healing process, in hopes of bringing companionship to whoever listens to this body of work. With a total of 9 tracks, the self-released full-length album is a lyrically powerful blend of Japanese Rock-inspired writing seamlessly combining it with the different elements of Dream Pop and Alternative Rock – drawing likes of Car Seat Headrest, Mitski, NICO Touches The Walls and Spitz.

Key tracks are centrepiece ‘(Track 4) Caving In’, a painfully honest confession of a dilemma between rationality and innate jealousy, and ’(Track 6) Spring Street Honeybee’, tracing a walk down of a bittersweet young love story. ’(Track 2) Please Don’t Do It’ is an Album Version of a previously release single, channeling a melancholic tune about one’s frustrations with their person going down a path of self-destruction.
In kotoji’s words, “I hope I am able to be there for you on your respective journeys, and this body of work can be your companion as you go through these moments of being human.”
