Well that was beautiful . . .
The MVs silent opening bothered me, but it is the industry standard. The camera angle was lovely. And the first notes filter in fabulously. The synth and the warped guitar . . . *shivers* so great. The cuts as the song picks up are are well done. And the visual transitions are very elegant. The styling is all gorgeous, they ALL look fantastic. The looks are edgy and elegant and the distressed lighting keys up on it even more. The lighting also plays into the lyrics. (Also, in case you don't know, Lillies are the quintessential flower to represent Death. They're not fun-spring-day allusions. In at least a dozen cultures around the world, Lillies are foreboding and tragic, either giving solace in Death or forewarning of it . . .).
Lyrically, it's gorgeous and truly tragic (I mean really: 'worse than the feeling lonely is the morning I'll forget you'). The vocals move well through the melody and the melodic structure evolves with the sort of elegance that can only be reasonably expected when Jrock is concerned. The panning of the different instruments give the song a great feeling of space-filled and the keening melodies each instrument independently follows create a beautiful sense of discordant longing and emptiness. Truly fantastic.
DIAURA is still pretty new to the jrock scene, but they clearly deserve to be here.
