構成・音作り・メロディ全てが非常に高いレベルで作り込まれていて、大変なこだわりを持って作曲されていることが伝わってきました。可変拍子が独特な溜めとノリを作り出すことで、爽やかで疾走感もありながら、何度も聞き返したくなるような個性と中毒性をもたらしています。前向きで元気をもらえるメロディに『革命の夜明け』という歌詞もぴったりハマっており、歌詞全体も聞き心地のよいユニークなワードチョイスが魅力的です。アウトロのドラマチックなギターソロまで逃がすことのできない聴き応えのある楽曲だと感じたため、採用とさせていただきました!

The variable beat creates a unique tame and groove that is refreshing and fast, but also brings a unique and addictive feeling that makes you want to listen to it over and over again.

The impressive guitar riffs and piano melody are as shimmering and beautiful as a starry sky, and the string arrangements that enter at key points add persuasiveness to the song's worldview. Despite the band sound, which tends to clash with sounds, each note comes forward sparklingly, and the production team's strong attention to detail was evident in the good job of mixing and encoding. The song was selected because we felt that everything about it was beautiful, from the poetic and fragile lyrics to the delicate pizzicato and piano sounds of the outro, not to mention the excitement of the chorus!

The lyrics about teasing love and the catchy melody are incredibly cute! While the song is straight to the heart of the song, the sexy bass line and funky bouncing piano that weaves in and out of the melody drew us in with its excitement.
