AZU – I WILL / CLOSE TO YOU [6th Single]

June 30, 2009 at 8:37 pm (AZU)

AZU I Will

AZU’s 6th single, entitled I WILL / CLOSE TO YOU, was released on 07.01.09.

I WILL is a painfully touching love ballad. The song starts off with a sweet instrumental that sounds like something that would play in a musc box. Then the music becomes more diverse, still keeping that twinkling sorrowful feeling with the chorus. AZU’s vocals sound a little high for the music but nonetheless, they sound nice. She sounds much more comfortable on the verse as her vocals are smooth and move with the music very well. It’s the pure instrumental section that really lets those emotions fly out for everyone to hear. Overall, the song is very enjoyable because AZU brings the emotions of the song to vivid life.

CLOSE TO YOU is a pretty midtempo number. It’s nothing that really stands out, especially compared to the leading A-side. Her vocals are nice and the music is sweet but it’s nothing that will really catch the listener’s ear.

In order to promote the single, a PV for I WILL was made. The video suits the sad atmosphere of the song perfectly as AZU cries, reminiscing about the sweet memories she had with her boyfriend. It really captures the sorrow of a past love. It actually kind of looks like a scene from a drama.

Single Ranking: B +

AZU did a very good job with this single. I WILL is a perfect sad love ballad and will touch the listener’s heart. CLOSE TO YOU is a little dull but cute. Hopefully AZU will be more active during the second half of the year.
