King & Prince’s final single Tsukiyomi launched simply after it was revealed that three of the 5 members could be leaving the group this spring. Now, the group is working on momentum till that fateful second. Double a-side Life Goes On / We Are Younger serves double obligation as a twin OST providing and a musical farewell of kinds. Although there’ll possible be a brand new tune or two on their upcoming best hits album (at the least I hope so!), that is undoubtedly the ultimate single we’ll be getting from this configuration of King & Prince.
Each songs really feel extra milquetoast than I’d have hoped for, however unsurprisingly I’m drawn to the extra upbeat of the 2. It helps that Life Goes On serves because the ending theme to member Nagase Ren’s present drama Yugure ni, Te wo Tsunagu. That is simply my favourite drama of the season and an absolute delight to look at. That goes a good distance towards infusing the tune with private bias. It’s a tacky, upbeat pop stomper, however it jogs my memory of the drama and the goofy dance that goes together with the top credit. Typically, that’s sufficient.
It’s sufficient to forgive the truth that Life Goes On seems like a industrial jingle. It’s sufficient to forgive the insipid whistling that opens the monitor. And, it’s sufficient to momentarily neglect the group has made way more attention-grabbing music than this up to now. As a substitute, I’ve fortunately embraced this chipper pleasure bomb. I’m into its hand-clappy refrain and boisterous “oh!”s that punctuate the sing-song melody. It is probably not excessive artwork, however I’ll take the unabashed jolt of optimism.
