Qrion unveils brilliant debut album, ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’

After announcing the advent of her debut LP in September, Qrion has now bestowed fans with I Hope It Lasts Forever. The project was led by a slew of pre-album singles such as “Your Love,” “11-11,” and most recently, “Proud,” which showed Qrion as she continued to earn her electronic stripes as she further solidified her place on Dancing Astronaut’s list of Artists to Watch in 2021.

Finding herself in San Fransisco during the pandemic while her family was abroad back in her hometown of Japan, Qrion—known offstage as Momiji Tsuruda—faced inward, turning to memories from her childhood rather than finding inspiration for her music from the outside world, as she usually does.

The album hinges on soft, subtle, ambient excursions, flowing with ethereal synth work that is joined by bright kicks and fluid vocal samples. Qrion shared her intentions for the album, stating, “My hope is that my music and this album will also become part of other people’s memories—something that people can carry with them into the future.”

Qrion is no stranger to industry support, having caught the attention of esteemed imprints such as Last Night on Earth, Mad Decent and This Never Happened. Previously touring with dance music icons like Porter Robinson, deadmau5, Above & Beyond, and more, Qrion now takes center stage, embarking on her first headline tour around North America.
