Review

The follow up to the bombastic attack of Fukyouwaon is Kaze ni Fukaretemo. It is a catchy dance pop song that is less in your face than its predecessor projecting a strong sense of exuberance throughout its short running time. It also closely follows Keyakizaka46’s pattern of a-sides either being about defiance or rallying against “the man”/system. Or you get something more conventional focusing on friendship and/or love. In this case we get the latter.

The b-sides are a mixed bag with the folksy Soredemo Aruiteru and the conventional Sakamichi group style songs such as Kekkyoku, Jaa ne Shika Ienai and Hiraishin generating the most interest outside of the a-side.

Soredemo Aruiteru is a song performed by the first generation of Hiragana Keyaki members and it has some very fast, sometimes offbeat phrasing that might make it challenging for people to sing along to. However, it is another one of those retro sounding b-sides that are becoming a regular occurrence on Keyakizaka releases. It’s nice to hear them go back this particular well again.

Hiraishin is one of those moody type of songs that Keyakizaka46 can probably do with little effort by now. It is supposedly about the relationship between Hirate Yurina and the other members after Keyakizaka’s recent summer tour. If that is the case things must have been a little rough for the group for a stretch.

In the end this is a decent single package from Keyakizaka46. It certainly isn’t the best that they have offered musically in their short discography. The b-sides on Types B and the Regular edition are kind of filler tracks so those might be something that only the most dedicated of fans might want to check out.
