Why I Love Decide Me Up (and you must too)
Fragrance are some of the common and well-known acts in J-pop, however I nonetheless really feel like I’m catching up with their discography. I all the time love the manufacturing of their songs, however the vocal strategy is one thing I actually need to be within the temper to understand. It’s so aloof – virtually deadpan in its personal means. That is clearly intentional and one in every of their greatest charms, however it doesn’t all the time jive with my private style.
Given this, it’s no shock that the effusive Decide Me Up stands as my favourite Fragrance single. Sure, that trademark vocalization is omnipresent. However, the massive scale of the tune provides an opportunity to unbridle some parts of the group’s framework and provides us moments that attain for the celebs. On this case, these moments seem in Decide Me Up’s refrain. We get a touch of this bombast within the opening instrumental, which cascades proper out of the gate earlier than pulling again for softer verses. The observe builds again greater with its prolonged pre-chorus and earlier than we all know it we’re scaling the heights of Decide Me Up’s immense centerpiece. That is one in every of my favourite exercise songs for a cause. It simply will get your blood pumping in a means solely probably the most satisfying EDM can.

However, I’m curious in the event you all know different Fragrance songs which are price diving into. They’ve actually acquired an enormous discography to select from.
