SOARA are the last unit to challenge the final chapter of the “Kachofugetsu Hen” four series. Much alike their peers, SOARA raised the bar just enough to erase from our mind after what was a sort of disappointing release back in September.
Single: 三日月ファンタジー (Crescent Fantasy) Label: Tsukino-Pro Release date: 25/11/2016 Genre: J-Pop-Rock
1.三日月ファンタジー 2.三日月ファンタジー -off vocal-
A sweet piano melody leads the way on what is a medium tempo pop-rock track. Kicking it off in a simple way just with that faint, hopeful melody and Toyonaga‘s voice, the song evolves into a soothing tune in which vocals and instrumental blend to create a perfect synergy. Instrumentally, as we mentioned before, this is a simple song with the trademark SOARA sound that we’re used to, blending rock with pop and classic elements in an engaging melody. This time around we’re not presented with an overcrowded chorus. Everything seems to have been toned down in a way that won’t hinder the overall enjoyment while listening to this song. Vocally, every single member got their time to shine properly – be it with the unison falsetto in the chorus or in the individual parts in the verses. In the end, “Crescent Fantasy” managed to up the game for SOARA, completing this series on a good note.
Crescent Fantasy is available for purchase on CDJAPAN for all overseas fans.
