Track analysis:

1 – Infini-Tribe

Infinit0 kick off their take with the appetizer series to the upcoming X Lied series, innovation. The duo performs in Infini-Tribe, the only song in this drama CD.

Infini-Tribe brings to the table a smooth, summery vibe with its piano and synth intro. Marimba-inspired synths and a simple, bass drum beat add the final touches to this EDM-pop track.

The verses are simple, making the best of the washy and dreamy atmospheric synths to build up tension, leading to a textbook, addictive EDM chorus.

And after the first chorus, comes the twist you weren’t expecting.

A trap inspired percussion section brings to the table an imposing beat, orchestral bits and dirty synths, setting a completely different tone within a song that has a pretty upbeat, bright vibe – for the most part.

That part swiftly morphs into a simple section in which atmospheric synths and a sweet piano melody serve as the music bed to the powerful vocals by this duo.


Infinit0 have a complete performance that mixes singing with rapping – even it the latter is just a brief section -, and do so with a confidence that makes their performance shine.

Worth noting that Hinata Todokoro continues to impress with his powerful vocals, performing with his low toned vocals for the majority of the song but when required, he can output some pretty impressive falsetto.

Mizuki Chiba keeps everything tight, with his mid-tones being the perfect complement to Todokoro’s low tones. Chiba’s vibrato shines in the verses and his high notes are also pretty solid.

All in all, Infinit0’s Infini-Tribe is a top tier track coming from this talented duo that further opens the doors for the duo to continue to explore electronica in the future.

REVIEW OVERVIEW
Infini-Tribe
The Hand That Feeds HQ founder and music reviewer writing about Japanese music since 2010. A year later, I stumbled upon Mamoru Miyano's "Orpheus". Since then I have been writing about male seiyuu music. You may find me writing almost essays whenever music is really good (not limited to, but it happens a lot with Soma Saito's music). I also host the male seiyuu-centric podcast, SEIYUU LOUNGE (see Spotify link in this profile).
