Review

SNOW SOUND/Ima Made Kimi ga Naita Bun Torimodosou is the 14th single release from [Alexandros]. It is a double a-side with SNOW SOUND featured as the CM song for the JR Higashi Nihon 2016-2017 JR SKISKI campaign and Ima Made Kimi ga Naita Bun Torimodosou being used as theme song for the movie Kyou no Kira-kun.

Both songs follow the mainstream pop route and are similar to the opening tracks from their EXIST! album. That means if you are looking for their grittier indie rock sound you will be out of luck on this single.

SNOW SONG is the more accessible of the two songs. Even though it has an up-tempo type of sound one can also hear a small undertone of melancholy.

Ima Made Kimi ga Naita Bun Torimodoso is the lower tempo track in this package and it sounds like a straightforward kind of song with no frills. It is not as immediately engaging as SNOW SOUND and is more like a slow burner that hooks you over its play time. For some it may take a few spins to get into.
