New favorite: ONE OK ROCK
Where was I?
Oh yeah, ONE OK ROCK.
I watched the Rurouni Kenshin movie a few days ago and while I loved the movie, I was also completely amazed by the song in the ending credits. I thought it was an American band because of the sound and the English lyrics I could understand, but then Japanese lyrics started to flow and my eyes were fixated to the screen to get the band's name.
Mighty Long Fall by ONE OK CLOCK
Artists who can use both English and Japanese hold a special place in my heart. Flipping back and forth just because, they offer a kind of indulgence that I rarely experience in my everyday life. I don't hold back a part of my brain or myself. I get to relax.
I don't go seeking these artists out, but it makes me happy to find music I want to hear right now and if it's both Japanese and English, that's the cherry on top.
Anyways, I was so taken in by ONE OK ROCK that I bought a new iTunes card and using the convenience store's free wifi, downloaded their most recent album.
Listening to it now. Good stuff. Just what I needed. Might post a follow-up after I've had the album for a while, but so far, I like it.
