Upcoming Singles Releases – Kalafina’s Storia, Ayaka’s Minna Sora no Shita and Suga Shikao’s Party People


Music Post!

A sneak peak at three upcoming July Singles releases featuring Kalafina, Ayaka and Suga Shikao.

SECL-788

CD Title: Storia
Artist: Kalafina
Release Date: 01-Jul-2009

Another brand new forthcoming single featuring 2 new tracks from Kalafina. The lead single and titular track “Storia” is also the image song for television series ‘Rekishi Hiwa Historia’, a variety programme produced by NHK. I really like the folksy-Irish feel to the music and of course, Kalafina’s trademark vocals made the song sounds epic. Somehow the music made me think of leprechauns, four leaf clovers and St. Patrick. 😛 The b-side song included on the single is called ‘lilica’, which harks more to their usual ‘Kalafina’ sound, a mix of contemporary and gothic feel that reminds me of their Kuroshitsuji ED song ‘Lacrimosa’. Overall, a recommended listen for fans of Kalafina and Kajiura Yuki.

Artist: Ayaka
Release Date: 8-Jul-2009

Ayaka’s latest upcoming single ‘Minna Sora no Shita’ features 2 brand new songs i.e the title track and a song called ‘Arigato’. Minna Sora no Shita is a lovely slow ballad that showcases Ayaka’s amazing voice soaring over a simple piano-based music arrangement. The song is also used as a CM for a shampoo commercial. **updated: track 1 and 2 song preview.

AUCL-3

Cd Title: Party People
Artist: Suga Shikao
Release Date: 15-Jul-2009

Party People will be Suga Shikao’s 25th Single release to date. It’s also his first single for 2009. As expected, the title song exudes Suga’s smooth funky disco-pop style which I really enjoy listening to. There are two other filler tracks featured on the single namely ‘Nurui Beer’ and ‘Tokyo Life’. Tokyo Life is also used as the theme for a commercial. I love all the songs on the single that I’d managed to sample. They’re all worth a listen. Nuff said.
