Guess it’s safe to assume that MiChi has at least temporarily decided to discard her synth music, which is now replaced by a variety of sounds. It’s pretty obvious, especially from a few seconds of All about the Girls ~Iijanka Party People~. It’s by far more energetic, more percussion friendly I guess, lots and lots of beats. Initially it didn’t sound all that great, but after a few listens it began to grow on me. The chorus was particularly interesting, it wasn’t as fast or catchy as PROMiSE, but it was more fun. It’s not her typical synth sound, more danceable this time. And the guy randomly muttering something during the chorus was actually good, added to the funkiness of the song. Overall it’s just really different from her usual stuff, give it a shot, it’s better than it sounds.
Where as the previous track was all about fun etc. Together again is more somber and dramatic. It was interesting because it sounds like a ballad initially but it picks up speed during the chorus, still sounding calm and lovely of course. This song actually features some synth, although it’s minimal compared to her older works. The acoustics, keyboard (?), guitar and beats make a superb combination. Catchy even though it’s a tad slow.
Still very synth driven though is dance DANCE! which was released as a digital single back in January ?!?!? It’s basically another amazing song from MiChi. Tons of synth, lots of great dance beats, and dance music. She also uses a ton of English, it’s pretty much every other line. And this song just has such an up-beat sound to it. It lifts you up when you’re down, that’s probably my favorite part about the song. That and the fact that it’s pretty infectious, despite not being nearly as fast as her previous songs.

Let’s just dance all night
So basically MiChi’s released another amazing single. And this time she looks decent, no mug shots FTW! The single is pretty diverse, but you can easily tell that it’s by MiChi. It has some new MiChi along with her signature synth/dance music. It’s something that new and old fans will appreciate. I just wish she would’ve released it sooner. Each song is pretty impressive on its own and together they’re ZOMG amazing.
