Molly feat. LGYankees
1. Yada yo…
It seems to have been quite a while since we’ve heard Maika last and she returned after a break with Yada yo… which is a little different than what I’ve heard before. It’s a ballad but it’s slightly poppy as well which makes it an easier listen. Maika’s vocals seem to have improved from “Kokoro” but she still sounds out of breath all over the song and the squeaks sound rather abrasive. It’s not all that bad but at least she’s showing improvement with her sound!
2. Molly feat. LGYankees
I know I have heard of LGYankees before but I do not know where for the life of me lol. They don’t seem to do much in the song since I’m not exactly sure where I’m looking for them…well…that is until they start rapping which is an interesting twist (and probably Maika did this because of her collaboration from “Kyouka Suigetsu”. The song is still quite light and kind of bores me in places…
I think of the songs of the single, Chikai is a lot like her previous releases. I mean it’s mostly acoustic guitar which is her strong suit and her older vocals seem to have returned here which might be a positive or negative thing to be honest. Take it as you wish, but if you didn’t like her past sound in her vocals (croaky, nasally, and the like) this isn’t your song.
Wow it has been quite a while since Maika released something…last was “Kokoro” of last year. Yada yo… shows that Maika has taken some vocal lessons and seem to be getting slightly better tone quality than stuff in her debut album. She did kind of bored me with this release but that’s OK since we get to hear her new style of singing (sans Chikai). Hopefully it won’t take too long to release another single.
