CD Single – ON/OFF’s Hana Kagari


Quick Post!

I love ON/OFF’s latest single!❤
smcl-165-00-3

The Sakamoto twins, Kazuya and Naoya, are back and they sound rather good. ON/OFF’s 4th single titled ‘Hana Kagari’ is something of a slight departure from their previous Singles in terms of sound. Their latest release is a lot less melodramatic than their Vampire Knight OP contributions which I must add I didn’t particularly enjoy. This title track is a melodious song with a traditional style of arrangement especially with the sweeping layers of harp, complemented by the light flute and piano in the background. The harp arrangement almost sounded like the Chinese ‘Guzheng’…it’ll be great if they did used ‘Guzheng’ which happens to produced one of the most beautiful melodic sounds that I love to listen to. The twins’ vocals sounded lovely as well. The second track is  much more of your average commercial j-pop type of song, not as good as the lead off track but still quite hip and listenable.

Edit: Something just came off my mind after listening to Hana Kagari…If only ‘Genji Monogatari Sennenki’ adopt this as the OP theme, it’ll be so much more fitting then Puffy’s Hiyori Hime…just a thought.
