- TODAY IS A NEW DAY
- Yellow (kensuke ushio REMIX)
1. TODAY IS A NEW DAY
I was surprised that Kaela would kind of go back to her pop/rock roots with TODAY IS A NEW DAY and I kind of like the natural sounding arrangement here! It’s pretty quirky and upbeat and Kaela’s voice has a great sense of fun and energy which is something I always enjoy with her music. The chorus kicks it up further with electric guitar at the forefront and lets loose more speed. I quite enjoyed this song a lot more than “OLE!OH!” that’s for sure!
It seems the energy continues on with the B-side, c’mon although unlike “TODAY IS A NEW DAY’s” more happier vibes, this almost takes a punk sound here and the chords from the electric guitar just makes this assumption moreso but I also felt myself enjoying this one that’s for sure! I’m kind of in the middle deciding if I liked the A-side or B-side more because they’re both quite good songs!
3. Yellow (kensuke ushio REMIX)
The single ends with a remix of Yellow (which was her 10th single). Not sure why this was chosen to be remixed, but hey it has our need of synths in comparison to the pop/rock songs above. I was surprised how deeper Kaela’s vocals were though, but it suited the club-friendly beats and synth clicks. Decent remix overall!
As Kaela ends the “MIETA” era off, TODAY IS A NEW DAY was a pretty rockin’ single and one of her better ones in recent times. I really do enjoy the main A-side and c’mon quite a lot (with a little more going to the B-side)! the remix of Yellow was also decent and didn’t do anything crazy. Happy to see both main tracks on the album…I can’t wait to see what we get!
