Review

Note: This review covers the Digital Special edition which does not contain the song Watashi no Migigawa (Sound Inn “S” Version) found on Type C of this single release.

Escape is Suzuki Airi’s first official single release featuring the title track as the lead song. It comes in 6 editions (3 regular, 3 limited) and is available digitally on iTunes/Apple Music, Recochoku and mora.

2018’s Do me a favor was the coming out party for Suzuki Airi as a solo artist. On that album she proved to be equally adept at taking on both pure pop and rock-oriented songs. Escape is no different, taking her along the same musical paths.

The title track is a dance/pop song with some light latin flavor to spice things up. Escape allows Suzuki to add some swagger and attitude to fit the mood created by the song. Something she didn’t do on the mostly fluffy tracks on her previous release. Escape kind of sounds like a song that would fit Kumi Koda. If the idea of Suzuki wrapping her vocals around that type of song interests you then this will satisfy your curiosity.

The b-sides on this single gravitate more towards the pop side of life with only one rock song (IDENTITY) to speak of. IDENTITY gives Suzuki the opportunity to flex her vocal muscles a wee bit over a fast paced, guitar driven instrumental. That is evident from the opening lines of the song. If the pure pop nature of the a-side doesn’t appeal to you then give this a try instead.

THE BRAND NEW LOOK is the other b-side worth mentioning simply because it is an infectious, sugary slice of pop. It might be slightly too over the top for some listeners whose saccharine tolerance level is low.

Escape is another solid release from Suzuki Airi that gives listeners further indication of the direction of her sound and what type of artist she wants to be. Taking this single into account with Do me a favor one can see that so far she has found a comfortable lane for her music that pays homage to her past while pushing her burgeoning solo career forward at the same time.
