Hinoyamatai “ROCK WITH YOU” (Review)


hinoyama

Continuing our review series of DYNAMIC CHORD‘s 2nd shuffle series we find Hinoyamatai. This shuffle unit includes Takuma Terashima (vocals – Liar-S), Toriumi Kousuke (guitar – rêve parfait), Yuichiro Umehara (bass – Apple-Polisher) and Yashiro Taku (drums – KYOHSO).

With pop-punk overflowing on their veins, Hinoyamatai aimed at the bullseye for a perfect song but instead missed the target with this release.

Track analysis:

1 – ROCK WITH YOU

The mid-tempo hi-hat driven drums kick off this song in the best way. With a hint of playfulness, “ROCK WITH YOU” benefits from having Terashima on vocal duty. His low toned vocals really add some edge to the song, although they lack energy – something pivotal in pop-punk. Still, if it wasn’t for him to add some spice to this song it would have been a rather boring listen, as the instrumental barely ever strays away from the same rhythm or add anything interesting to the mix. Despite kicking off on a good note the song proved to be nothing more than an okay listen. 

Final rating:

ROCK WITH YOU” is available for purchase on CDJAPAN for all overseas fans.
