Latest Sowelu single – ‘Dare yori Suki nano ni’

Posted by redracer on August 14, 2007

Released on 20th June, this is Sowelu’s 15th single.

If you do not know anything about this artist, please see my post about her previous single, which will give you some of her history. This time she really seems to be pushing the ‘sexy’ image, with a fabulous ‘bed’ shot inside the back cover (see last picture) …

The title track is a bit of a laidback pop ballad with lots of acoustic guitars, strings and tinkling pianos, and whilst her distinctive voice is pleasant enough, there is really nothing inspiring about the song. The B-side track, ‘Lies’, is more uptempo but her voice sounds strained and unatural. Unfortunately, this single has sold less than the previous one, so on a downhill spiral, I don’t know what the future holds for Sowelu. This release is better for the DVD to see her than the CD to listen to her😆

The track listing is …

  1. Dare yori Suki nano ni
  2. Lie
  3. Dare yori Suki nano ni (instrumental)
  4. Lie (instrumental)

As well as the CD version, there is also a DVD version (with a different cover), which contains …

  1. Dare yori Suki nano ni (PV)
  2. Dare yori Suki nano ni (making)
  3. 5th Anniversary specially planned video interview (pt 1)

I have been very busy training for a new job, so sorry there have been not many J-Pop reviews recently – the ‘Review Preview’ page is starting to build up😦

As you can see, she is not nude, but as close as possible to being naked 😀
