In a series of blogs titled 'Postcards From Shibuya', Nicolay explains what the inspiration was for his new album and how its songs came together.Omotesando is the name of one of the main avenues in the Shibuya district. It is best known as an upscale shopping area featuring several international brand boutique stores and outlets. Over 100,000 cars drive down this avenue every day.
As I was going through all of our photographs of Shibuya, searching for album art material, I came across the image of the cars driving down Omotesando, and I knew I had found the front cover.
''Omotesando'', one of the earlier pieces that I recorded for City Lights Vol. 2: Shibuya, opens the second suite of instrumentals on the album, and, following the avenue that it is named after, segues into "Meiji Shrine''.
