Up Up Typhoon (Instrumental)
1. Summer Beam!
As the primary A-side, Summer Beam! sounds like your typical idol summer pop song with a heavier dose of synths and beats. It could really be a Aki.P track because of just how plain it sounds (though it has some quirks about it). I feel like it could have a little more uniqueness about it, but there really isn’t many other summer songs in UUG so I suppose it does its job.
2. Up Up Typhoon
After all this time! We finally had gotten a PV from the group and strangely enough it’s of their secondary A-side, Up Up Typhoon. At first it starts off slowly with spoken monologue from Morisaki and then a solo from Akari! Once Konacchan enters in the song goes 180 into this wild and exciting tune! It’s a very good song to pump the crowd up…my only gripe is Morisaki in that chorus just cramming words up like that…lord…Still I would’ve loved seeing more Maana, but this song is great fun!
Jeeze, is it album time yet? As the group’s summer single, I thought they did pretty well with it overall. Summer Beam! might be a little bland, but it’s still quite jumpy for a song. Though the clear winner is Up Up Typhoon, with its awesome energy and fun spirit…This era has been going on too long though…
