I could scream this is such an interesting set list - I’m obsessed
I know, right, haha… They really leaned into the whole “covering female pop artists” angle.
btw they upped the first track from the stream to YT, pretty cool!
Holy crap it’s just like despa would be complete again. His voice fits just perfect
I like to hear old songs from D’espairsray too. But with a new singer, I’d clearly prefer to hear new songs. But seems they are on the way to have original songs.
Do you think it’ll be better than H.U.G?
Difficult to say for the moment. My instinct tell me it can be same level as H.u.g, it’s the same composer for both projects.
On the paper, I prefer H.u.g, I have more feeling with ryo as a singer, and I really like Takeo on drums (To my great regret, he doesn’t do studio recordings with them).
Time will tell us about Luv Parade.
