J-rock band Gesu no Kiwami Otome released today their new digital single Muka na Kisetsu, a sudden release that pleases everyone eager to listen to more music from this ever growing and appreciated band.
It’s hard to guess how Enon Kawatani can manage and compose all the music for both Gesu no Kiwami Otome and indigo la End at the same time, but one thing is for sure: his talent and inventive don’t suffer from it at all. And this new track is another proof of it, delivering a fast execution in an easy-listening key without compromising the well layered wall of sound and personality of each musician that made this band so popular: from the sound of the first piano notes that kick off the track leading to the almost frantic drumming, to the amazing bass riff breaking the structure and opening the way to the synth-influenced bridge, the execution is precise, classy and delicate, framed by the unique singing and vocal interpretation of Enon Kawatani. In its barely three minutes length, Musa na Kisetsu comes to the hear of the listener delicately and leaves with the same class, pleasing and surprising in each one if its sections and showcasing once again the great technique and delicacy that composes the personality of these guys: There’s no useless filler here, and each second enriches the experience gradually, which is the main factor that makes this song an enjoyable and rewarding experience that I recommend to anyone that’s looking to get into this band’s music.
Muka na Kisetsu drops today on iTunes Japan, in the hope to see it digitally released worldwide as well.
