Third single release from ‘school food punishment‘. Not too sure what’s with the cd title though, ‘sea’ instead of ‘see’…ah, weird kind of communication coming through, I’d say. 😆
SFP’s latest effort ‘Sea-through Communication‘ sees the band going for a more electro-pop feel with lots of synths and keyboards effects. I’m glad they’re not stuck in the ‘futuristic imagination‘ mode as they were with their second single ‘Butterfly Swimmer‘. The songs from their 2nd single sound too much like their first one. But with ‘Sea-through Communication’ SFP prove that they are still able to write catchy melodies that are different from their previous work. I also thought they’ve gone more towards mainstream j-pop with their latest sound. Very evident of this is the title track itself which is more pop than rock. It certainly has got a great hook of a chorus. Track 2, ‘fiction-nonfiction‘ veered slightly off the j-pop vibe, utilizing lots of synths to create a rockier/edgy sound with the uptempo fast beats. Very listenable track as well. Track 3 is a remix version of their previous single ‘Butterfly Swimmer’. Well, I still prefer the original version to the electro-pop arrangement. Overall, better than their last single.
