A while ago, I asked a bunch of you what music videos I should review that are non Kpop. You all gave very good suggestions. I have loved almost everything you have thrown at me and I always accept more requests. However, one request in particular, I found out doesn’t have a music video attached to the song so instead, I’ll review another music video by the same artist to get a feel and understanding for this artist. Then at a later date, I will do a song review for the song requested.
This is my first short review of a song. Typically my Quick Reviews cover multiple artists or songs in one post. This, however, will be focusing on one artist’s song, but without me knowing too much about the artist or feeling like the artist has released several songs within a short period of time. These reviews will be called Review Snippets. Today’s Review Snippet will be for Sumire, a Japanese Pop artist that I know literally nothing about.
I really hate Japanese music videos sometimes. They are simply promos for the album. This video in particular had a large promo covering half of the screen. The video ended before the end of the song. She is really beautiful, but the scenes didn’t change much. It was her singing into a mirror, walking along a beach, and lying in a wedding dress. The color grading was really flat and completely lackluster.
As for the song, it moved really well. The piano in the song was definitely synthesized and the song only really had three chords but it was still a good song. She sings a couple lines in English in the chorus which give away the motive of the song. She’s a girl that desperately wants to get married. I would have really loved to listen to the rest of the song with the video but I’ll have to check it out on my own.
Thank you for your support. Please support Sumire because she’s beautiful, has a good voice, and is extremely talented from what I saw from this video. What did you think of the song, if this is your first time with Sumire? Who does she remind you of? I have a couple of singers in mind, but I’ll let you give me your ideas. Thank you again and I’ll see you in my next review.
Like I've mentioned before, music has no language barriers, it knows no language. I want to dedicate this section of my website to reviewing in any way, shape or form other languages of music. This includes Jpop, Mandopop, OPM, Vpop, Latin music, Russian, German, American, Venezuelan, you name it. If you think it's worth giving a listen, I'll listen to it and give you a review.
