Track analysis:

1 – 希望時々僕ら

Acoustic guitars and brass take the listener in a laid-back way to “Kibou Tokidoki Bokura“. 

Fans will be surprised to find the group embracing reggae for this tune, straying away from their trademark electro-rock sound.

The verses are all about good vibes with a shaker, bassline, and acoustic guitars creating a warm soundscape. Brass gives life to this tune while the vocals contrast in a sweet way.

The chorus is made to sing along (alternatively, just sit back and feel the good vibes) with the bouncy instrumental making sure to put a smile on your face.

The vocals are not as technical as infinit0 has used its fans to however do expect gentle harmonies in a strong display of teamwork.

While the instrumental has its fun and the vocals are quite entertaining, the song quickly loses its shine due to the simplicity of its main melody (you can argue that it is actually the other way, it may get more addictive to some listeners).

All in all, “Kibou Tokidoki Bokura” is a fun tune that shows a different side from the electro-rockers, infinit0.

REVIEW OVERVIEW

希望時々僕ら

SUMMARY

“Kibou Tokidoki Bokura” is a fun tune that shows a different side from the electro-rockers, infinit0. Reggae (you can argue it leans more towards ska) takes over in this bubbly tune that breaks the mold for the duo. This change arrived as unexpected as, up until now, the duo was very keen on its balance between electro-rock and ballads. Although not a remarkable song within inifinit0's repertoire, it is one well worth checking out as it tests the versatility of the group and showcases yet again the awesome chemistry and vocals in this group.
