Random Song of the Day – 09/14/17

Today, REOL:

So, this should not come as a surprise to anyone who’s listened to my podcast, but in case you don’t for some reason, I love rhythm games quite a bit, even if I’m not especially good at them in the strictest sense. As such, I also generally love Hatsune Miku titles; while they’re not my favorite games in the genre, they’re fun and usually mechanically sound, plus they feature the aesthetic parts of Dance Dance Revolution I liked (silly dancing models in the background) without the parts I didn’t (having to spend $100 on a controller that would allow you to play worth a damn).

This isn’t exactly a Miku song, but it’s close; as I understand it, and feel free to correct me if I have this wrong in the comments, the artist in today’s song, REOL, wrote this song, and either wrote it with the intention of licensing it to Sega for use in a Miku game before recording it herself or always intended to use it herself but licensed it out because why not right, and the end result is a song that has appeared in a Miku game, featuring a Miku heavy video, only it’s recorded by the artist who wrote the song.

Either way, I love the hell out of this song because it’s infectious and up-tempo, and REOL knows how to make a song that feels futuristic, basically.
