Track analysis:

1 – love music

Infinit0 arrive with good vibes and a groovy sound in “love music”.

This is a big departure from their intense electro-rock sound yet one very welcome and refreshing change.

The soundscape is warm and bubbly, with funky guitar riffs, a punchy bass line, brass and disco inspired strings fleshing out the summery vibe that is going on.

The verses are a bundle of fun, never missing a beat and the chorus is catchy and upbeat however, not in a way that is cheesy or lazily done. I really enjoy the sound that infinit0 have going in “love music”. It is fun and, in a way, a mature take on bubbly pop and it works pretty well with the vocals.

The outro counts with a cool – albeit brief – guitar solo with strings hits in the background, leading to another exciting take on the chorus. By this time, it is safe to say that you’ll be singing along to the song with a smile on your face.

When it comes to the vocals, infinit0 always deliver. The chemistry between Hinata Tadokoro and Mizuki Chiba is a gift that keeps on giving.

Their harmonies in the chorus are music to my ears. those flow so smoothly and their vocals fit so well together that it is always a highlight when they harmonize. As far as solo parts go, they know how to deliver and their energy levels are always high for this song.

love music” is not as complex as their previous releases however, its natural fun and bubbly vibe more than make up for the fact that they’ve strayed a bit away from their usual sound.
