(40 seconds of)Tougenkyo

The official site updated with the new single artwork and the briefest of previews of the Honesty produced Tougenkyo half of the double a-side release.

Firstly, as we already knew they aren't rapping. They aren't really doing any circa Ongaku No Susume style singing either. In fact, they sound like they aren't really sure what they're supposed to be doing.

So far it sounds pleasant enough in an easily ignorable sort of way, but when Halcali's talents obviously lie elsewhere, why give them this stock pop/rock tune to sing?

I love the artwork though- grown up, but not too grown up.

The single is a stock song written by Kaela Kimura's producer, and that's exactly what it sounds like. BUT - it's a grower. In a way it's very HalCali. And there's a rap bit tucked in there too. Have faith!

I'm certainly not going to write it off totally before I've heard the full version, and you've given me a bit more hope that I'll like it!
