Lia (Veil) – Kokoro ni Todoku Uta December 27, 2010

Filed under: Lia — solarblade @ 4:30 am

Track Listing

  1. Kokoro ni Todoku Uta
  2. WHITE and SHADOW ~Mugen no Rinbu~
  3. Kokoro ni Todoku Uta (Instrumental)
  4. WHITE and SHADOW ~Mugen no Rinbu~ (Instrumental)

1. Kokoro ni Todoku Uta

If Lia has permanently changed over for a more folkish sound ala Haruka Shimotsuki, Kokoro ni Todoku Uta would definitely fit either artists since both have the right vocals for it.  The jolly arrangement is anot much of a surprise after her last single, “kizunairo”, but it’s a lot more festive and colorful and for that deal, it’s a great A-side from Lia.

2. WHITE and SHADOW ~Mugen no Rinbu~

As the single’s B-side, WHITE and SHADOW kind of still has that small folkish sound going on, but the music is much more quieter and more along the lines of a ballad, but with Lia’s pretty strong vocals.  Sometimes her vibrato does hinder her on the scale of things, but for such a quiet song, it’s very pretty and made for a good B-side.

As the 4th/5th (depends on who you’re asking), Kokoro ni Todoku Uta is a pretty good single overall.  The title song is very much like a peppier and more exciting version of “kizunairo” and I liked that she stepped it up after that while WHITE and SHADOW was a much more stronger song and B-side than the last few she released.  Though with the Veil title, it makes me wonder what that exactly is….a character?  Or something entirely different?

    Regarding Veil: from what I’ve gathered, Veil is a group of queen’s label artists working with different producers to produce music for games. They’ve apparently released compilation and denpa albums. A bit like I’ve Sound, one might say. But I wonder where this single stands then; it’s under the Veil brand, so I maybe wouldn’t count it in her main discography, but on the other hand it’s on the front page of her site so… don’t know. 😐
