Exams begin next week, I hope you get why I haven’t posted in so long. I promise that I will catch up in May! ( I wrote this before exams if you couldn’t tell)
So For You is another classic Rie fu song. It’s an up-beat pop-folk song. Very harmonious instruments and great vocals. The song features some guitars, pianos, acoustic guitars, and some synth even! Not sure who the producer is, but it’s a great song. It’s extremely catchy, her English is flawless yet again; and the music sounds so spirited and perfect.
Come on Come on ~Rie fu no Eikaiwa Kouza~ has a bit more of a rock persona, yet still stays true to her folk roots. The song is blissful and perfect for the summer IMO. It’s similar to the title track, just a bit more up-beat and a bit more percussion oriented.
One-Bite really blew me away. I was expecting another folk song, but it turned out to be a flawless ballad. It’s truly been a while since I’ve heard a spectacular ballad from Rie fu, easily 2 years. This ballad was breathtaking. The classical music was inspiring, and the strings and piano were amazing. What I loved even more though, were Rie fu’s vocals. They were the epitome of beauty, and a delight to hear.
So her last single was released almost two years before this one, and she’s come a long way since then. This single was incredibly refreshing. Although I loved her synth styled music, I did miss some of her folk songs. The two folk-pop songs were just wonderful. Again, refreshing and perfect for the summer, despite being released in February, you can tell that I’ve been busy….. But year, great single, I seriously cannot wait till her next single!
