Hidden Sun 05:31
三日月の朝に 目を覚ます 揺らめく水面に 囚われた光 夢現際の世界 ぼやけた視界 束の間の知識を 焼け付く記憶を 太陽に向かう 雲の柱を ぼくは見た 虹色 灰色 灰色 虹色 重なる未来 重ねる その時 誰もが瞬きしていた その時 誰かが貫かれていた 太陽に向かう 雲の柱を ぼくは見た


"Hidden Sun" is a mid-tempo nu gaze and shoegaze song.
It has a dramatic sequence and melodic phrases.
First, electric piano loop is flowing the basis of this song.
And bassline and tone are so heavy and deeper sounds.
Melodic lo-fi guitar phrases will be coming in one after one.
Hazy and blurry vocals that are characteristic of otom intertwine with the guitars.
Layered vocals in Japanese lyric sing about the one day dream(it's not mean eclipse).
And then, heavenly and dreamy chorus part will wrap everything sound field.
The ending guitars are so noisy, emotional shoegaze sound.
The original version of this song is included in ep of "The Night In The Rainbow" (2005),
And included in 4th album of "Hidden Sun" (2008).

"Hidden Sun" is now available on digitally.
released March 21, 2016

2016年3月21日にリリース、otomのニューゲイザー、シューゲイズな一曲の"Hidden Sun"。エレクトリックピアノのフレーズを軸にドラマチックな展開を見せる。メロディアスかつローファイなフレーズからエモーショナルなギターサウンドとかすれた雰囲気のボーカルのオーバーダビングが際立った曲です。
