DaizyStripper: Harumeku Bokura
As far as ballads go, Harumeku Bokura may just be one of the loveliest things I’ve ever heard. The relaxing, healing melody aided by trickles of piano in counter-melody will undoubtedly soothe your worries and give you those inexplicable warm and fuzzies. Though the single is spring-themed, it’s actually suitable for any season: warmth in winter, color in autumn, or smiles in summer.
The B side “Kill the King,” on the other hand, is a drum-fed headbanger. Once you get adjusted to vocalist Yu-Giri’s high pitched voice, you get an original sense of unpleasant discord which is created by the contrast of deep guitar and drums. In just two songs, DaizyStripper expressed the depth of their musical range, bravely pairing two styles even more vastly different than most versatile singles. However, the softer moments of “Kill the King” manage to tone it down just enough to make the two pieces a good match.
