Hopefully that is correct, not sure if it’s a name or I’ve missed something. Perhaps “tsunagaru” is a wordplay of some sort? I’m fairly certain that Setsuna is a name, just not sure about the former word.
Anyways, what we have here is another Touhou music group… circle? I figure I may as well branch out to other official YouTube channels that do this sort of music, because I enjoy writing about them.
This time it’s Inorai, a group that contains some folks that we’ve actually heard before from Akatsuki Records, with the arranger ACTrock and vocalist Cheluce in this group. An example of a song they did together under Akatsuki Records was 花言の葉 / Flowery Petals.
The song this time is called ツナガル セツナ (Tsunagaru Setsuna).
The song is based off of the Touhou track Wind God Girl. There’s a lot of trumpet in this one. Not a bad thing, but personally 6 minutes of it gets a little much. Still, the melody is good, and the song has that catchy Touhou feel to it.
It feels very relaxing to move onto Tsunagaru Setsuna from there. Cheluce has a soft voice I think, so even when she is putting some power into her voice it still has a soft sound to it. Much better than the trumpets, in my opinion. Sorry ZUN!
I guess like many other Touhou rearranges, I feel like the original track just comes alive here. Tsunagaru Setsuna feels so much more dynamic than the original. It’s a good experience, overall, and I’ve enjoyed this song very much.
Evening Primrose was one of my favourite Akatsuki songs, so far at least, so it’s nice to hear Cheluce’s voice in another song.
Tonight, for the first time ever, I had decided to actually leave the “autoplay” feature for YouTube on, and let it lead me wherever it wanted. While mostly it had me listening to Akatsuki Records, it did bring me to Inorai, as well as a few other groups that I’d like to write about. As long as it’s an official YouTube, I’m up for covering it here.
There’s some good music here, so I figure I may as well!
Until next time,
Thanks for reading.
