Love Searchlight -Instrumental-
1. Love Searchlight
Kou returns to music with Love Searchlight with a pretty funky and cool song! It sounds like it’s supposed to be a rock track, but there’s synths present and a lot of slap bass (especially in the verses). I just love the energy of the song and Kou sounds really good along the dance beats and fun instrumentation. If there was a song to bring back Kou to my favorites, this song would be up there! Though only 3 minutes long???
Unlike the fantastic upbeat nature of “Love Searchlight”, Chikai is a more toned down affair…to the point where it does have its Western feels going on. Kou’s vocals of course are on point and she gives this mid-tempo track a lot of charm IMO. Might not be better than the A-side, but it’s a solid B-side for the single, maybe she’ll include it on her next album hopefully!
Has it been over a year since Kou released anything? Jeeze! Kou returned with Love Searchlight and this single overall was pretty good. Love Searchlight has a lot of that great Kou energy that she just has been doing well with in recent times though it could’ve been a little longer. Chikai was pretty nice and suited her quite nicely…hope this means a good stretch of singles in the future!
