Track analysis:

7 – RISE

Impish Crow‘s debut release brings forth exciting guitar riffs, energetic splashy drums and a groovy bass line. RISE has a textbook 4-piece rock band sound but there is a charm about it that makes the band standout even among textbook rock bands.

The chorus is exciting and the vocals shine throughout the track, with Yuma Uchida really giving that final edge to the performance with his consistency and emotional take on the vocals.

As a whole, RISE is a solid debut track that highlights a band with a youthful rock sound in comparison with RUBIA Leopard.

Yuma Uchida is a great fit on the vocal end for this outfit, being able to make the music genre his with a performance that, undoubtedly, stands out.

Impish Crow are off to a great start.

Impish Crow is an indie rock band fronted by TSUGUMI (CV: Yuma Uchida) with guitarist TOKI (CV: Takuya Eguchi), bassist MITSURU (CV: Wataru Hatano) and drummer HIBARI (CV: Shinnosuke Tachibana).

DIG-ROCK Impish Crow Vol.1 is available for purchase at CDJAPAN.
