Aira Mitsuki – チャイナ・ディスコティカ [2nd Single]

July 29, 2008 at 10:44 pm (Aira Mitsuki) (, )

Aira Mitsuki’s 2nd single, entitled チャイナ・ディスコティカ, was released on 03.05.08. The title track was used as the “respect song” for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.

チャイナ・ディスコティカ is the leading A-side, an enjoyable song with an electronic sound. The song starts off with a few lines and her vocals sound great as the distortion perfectly fits with the song’s overall sound. Soon the first verse begins and there is something almost comforting about the combination of vocals and music that the listener falls in love. The chorus is very enjoyable as there is a certain poppiness that stands out. Every moment of pure instrumentation is enjoyable as the music is just so addictive. The song is a fantastic song that shows off electronic sounds perfectly.

The B-side is ROMANTIC ROPE. Opening the song is the chorus, which sounds nice with some light electronic influences. Her vocals sound great here and are very ear-capturing. With the first verse, the distortion isn’t as strong on her voice as the A-side and it allows her voice to be spotlighted. During the moments of pure instrumentation, there is an element of coolness that comes through and stands out to the listener. This is a strong song and definitely a great B-side.

In order to promote the single, a PV for チャイナ・ディスコティカ was made. The video is very strange and colorful, even featuring pandas. This is a very strange video and definitely a strange one. There isn’t much to say about it but it does match the sound of the song nicely.

Single Ranking: A

チャイナ・ディスコティカ and ROMANTIC ROPE make this single fantastically. While the A-side features heavy electronic sounds and an addictive beat, ROMANTIC ROPE is a lighter electronic song that really stands out to the listener. She delivers a wonderful single and certainly one to look out for.
