school food punishment's one of my favourite bands and their music is a mix of ambient, pop and rock. They have an awesome sound and very creative, yet each song has their own distinctive feel to them. This is their debut album.

Some might be going, 'what kind of cover is that?' but I think it really reflects their experimental/abstract sound that they have :D

[010] Kylee - Kimi Ga Iru Kara

Kylee » Kimi Ga Iru Kara

Genre: Rock, Pop, RnB, Ballad
Leak Date: 10.03.24
Sounds Like: Um, I dunno. Someone good? lol.
Adjective: Great

01 キミがいるから (Kimi Ga Iru Kara)
02 On My Own
03 She Wishes
04 キミがいるから (Kimi Ga Iru Kara) [Less Vocal]

change xx → tt

Kylee is relatively new singer, with Japanese and American heritage. She's young (like 15!) but she has an extremely mature, strong voice that is gorgeous! And she also looks great in the cover, don't you think?

She's previously released songs for Xam'd: Lost Memories (VACANCY) which was used for the ending theme. She's also released a EP called Love Kicks. All songs released previously were entirely in English, and this single will mark her first Japanese debut. The title track, Kimi Ga Iru Kara is used for some drama, but I can't remember it from the top of my head.

Jisun is LoveHolic's previous female singer before she left, releasing her own album.

Jisun's debut album is a really good one. I don't think it's one of those albums that hit you straight away, but slowly grows on you. After a couple of listens, you begin to appreciate each track more and more. I prefer the second half of the album more, but that's my opinion. I don't think that the songs are evenly distributed - most of the upbeat songs are at the beginning while the slower songs are towards the end. The instrumentals are mellow, beautiful and soothing, perfectly suited to Jisun's breathy but beautiful voice. Rating: 9.2/10
