ent unveils wistful and dreamlike Music Video for “Kanashimi ga Umareta Basho”

ent, better known as the solo project of Straightener frontman Atsushi Horie, has announced that it will releasing its third full-length album “ELEMENT” on January 11th.  Rather than Staightener’s hard-edged alt. rock sound, ent’s music is a relaxing mix of post rock and electronics which is intended to stir the emotions of those who listen to it.

Ahead of the album’s release, Horie has uploaded the music video for its lead track “Kanashimi ga Umareta Basho” to Universal Music Japan’s Youtube channel.  This PV is a special collaboration with the Tokyo Cosmo animation project, featuring its heroine as she works up the courage to push through her everyday life and fight off the isolation of living alone in Tokyo.

You’ll find the touching MV for “Kanashimi ga Umareta Basho”, a trailer which previews the remainder of “ELEMENT”, and the album’s cover and track list right after the cut.
