Review | Hinoyamatai “ROCK WITH YOU”

With pop-punk overflowing in their veins, Hinoyamatai aimed at the bullseye but instead missed the target with this release.

Track analysis:

1 – ROCK WITH YOU

The mid-tempo hi-hat-driven drums to kick off this song in the best way. With a hint of playfulness, “ROCK WITH YOU” benefits from having Terashima on vocal duty.

His low-toned vocals really add some edge to the song, although they lack energy – something pivotal in pop-punk.

Still, if it wasn’t for him to add some spice to this song it would have been a rather boring listen, as the instrumental barely ever strays away from the same rhythm or add anything interesting to the mix.

Despite kicking off on a good note the song proved to be nothing more than an okay listen. 


ROCK WITH YOU” is available for purchase at CDJAPAN.
