A full radio preview for Berryz Koubou’s 27th single titled Aa, Yoru ga Akeru! has been released.
I have to say that the first feeling I got at the first listen was confusion. The song is something really special and unique that we haven’t seen from any H!P group in a long while, and I have to say that I’m impressed to see that they took the risk to try out this new style with Berryz since they seem to fit the song the best.
The song itself is quite hard to describe since it doesn’t follow a precise pattern, but it has many variations in the rythm with different instrumentals and many different sounds to it, which gives a feeling of confusion at first thanks to the unknown theme (it’s like a mix of disco with some soft rock at times), but after a few listens, the unique pattern that it follows is really amazing and new.
Another thing that caught my attention was how present Yurina’s voice was through the whole song since I almost heard her as much as Risako, but unfortunately, it seems that after 2 singles of equal line distribution, Berryz are back to Risako, Miyabi and Momoko being the main voices, with a plus which is Yurina, and even though it might seem unfair and many might be depleased by this, I think that they all did an amazing job to pull this unique song through.
The main parts of the song seem to be the disco beats during the verses, the amazing bridge at the middle where each girl sings a line with a high note, the many sound effects that only add to the uniqueness of the song, and all of those combined really prove how much effort they put in to make this song special.
Overall, it’s really one unique and hard to describe song, so I recommend everyone to hear it at least 2 times before judging if they like it or not, and hopefully to set themselves in the theme the single will have since I really like it and think it’s an amazing release from Berryz, specially thanks to its variety and the instrumental.
Hopefully everyone can enjoy listening to it and even though I think that the outfits and the song clash a bit, we’ll get a full idea once the covers and the PV are out.
The release date is set for 8/10.
