1. never cry
Ok, yeah 3 major label single reviews in a row hahaha. Here we get to Maika’s major label debut never cry and it seems Maika’s vocals remind me of Avril Lavigne’s vocals but in Japanese and not in the way it’s ruined. I don’t know why but her uber throaty vocals gave the song punch and it ended up actually being good.
2. real size
The B-side though takes the seriousness out of “never cry” and leaves us with a nice upbeat B-side and I’ve found myself enjoying this song quite a bit more than the A-side which is a good thing since she’s capable of releasing strong songs on both sides of the spectrum.
I think Maika’s debut major single is pretty good even though her vocals are definitely not for everyone, at least the B-side was able to sound fun and interesting. Since she already announced another single and album, I can’t wait to see what’s in store from Maika
