dreamy success シングル, マキシ
akkoのソロ・プロジェクトとして再始動した、My Little Loverの復活第3弾シングルが完成しました!タイトル曲は、akko曰く“めちゃポップなサウンドに、辛辣な歌詞を盛り込んで、軽やかに歌いきる”とってもマイラバらしいナンバー。ポップ&ロックなサウンドは、ライヴ栄え間違いなしです! (C)RS商品の説明をすべて表示する
For those who are reading this and wondering if My Little Lover is a band, I guess you can say that it operates similar to the band ZARD. Which started out as a band but later became a solo artist (in ZARD's case... Izumi Sakai), My Little Lover was a trio, then duo and now with the move to avex trax focuses on vocalist acco while husband, musician and producer T. Kobayashi focuses on ap bank projects, events and also producing other artists.
The last CD single "Afureru" brought T. Kobayashi back to producing and even participating in the music but in the latest CD single "dreamy success", akko continues to work with different musicians and the latest CD single features three diverse tracks that don't all incorporate the My Little Lover style of music but by no means does it mean its a bad thing.
The first track "dreamy success" is a catchy pop song which incorporates a MLL feel that is happy, fast-paced song which incorporates a heavy beat.
While "jelly fish" shows a bit of acco's interest in incorporating more acoustic tracks to her music. And with akko interested in several American artists that do incorporate a country/rock/acoustic style feel to their music, it was nice to see a different type of song that she takes on and does well with. The song has a Jack Johnson acoustic feel but with a beat.
The third track "kuchibiru" is a slow ballad that incorporates a piano/acoustic/drum accompaniment. It's a beautiful song that is very mature and hip lounge style of song.
All three songs are written by akko.
The CD insert comes with the lyrics to the music and an insert promoting My Little Lover's winter acoustic tour.
I've grown up with My Little Lover's music and learned to enjoy their style of music, may it be the style of past, or a style incorporating worldly instruments and beats to an electronic underground style of music.
For me, I have enjoyed My Little Lover's music and how they are able to embrace musical styles worldwide and most of all, not afraid to experiment without any worry of offending fans used to a certain style of music of theirs.
"dreamy success" is a good single, definitely not among their best material to date but still an enjoyable CD single that manages to experiment with musical styles again but yet sounding so fresh and appealing that longtime listeners of the band won't be disappointed.
With acco's acoustic concert coming up in Winter 2007, it's great to get a sample on this CD single of what she has in store for her live performance and I look forward to checking that out.
