[Single] Kagrra, – Tsuki ni Murakumo Hana ni Ame

2010年 7月 15日

Kagrra, always has nice covers. And always so Japanese! Kind of weird how there’s no title or anything on it though.

Tsuki Ni Murakumo Hana Ni Ame starts off with a bit of singing and stuff followed by a short intro using a traditional instrument. This theme used in the intro will reappear throughout. They are pretty good at integrating Japanese themes and instruments into their music. There’s a nice guitar solo in here too. The vocal melody doesn’t have very much range in this song and I feel like that takes away from this a bit.

Hinamoto is a little faster. It has a completely different feel than the previous song. The guitars stand out a little more, but mostly play broken chords to create the atmosphere. Bass… just plays quite a bit of repeated notes. It seems like after a certain point, the traditional instruments just disappear.

Gikyoku Hana Ichi Monme. Our last song. This is a rather unusual work. The band plays some strange mixture of music at the beginning and a little bit more into it. There are buildups to more clear sections. I get the feeling of some creepy forest or something. Anyway, it’s a pretty unusual song.

Overall: Pretty average stuff for Kagrra, but still nice to listen to. The last song was kind of unusual, but not bad.

  1. Ooh, the picture is beautiful.
    But what does the title mean…? Cause all I can read is “Tsuki” = “Moon” and “Hana” = “Flower.”
