Song of the Day #55: Band Ja Naimon! – Kimi no Egao de Sekai ga Yabai!

I don’t know too much about Band Ja Naimon – I’ve heard of them quite a bit but I’ve never really sought out their music. However, a while ago I found this on YouTube and immediately loved it. It has an almost quality to it, where it’s a bit of a weird song but at the same time is put together very well. The guitar at the beginning’s solo suggests that this is all a bit off-kilter, and while parts of it are fairly straightforward (the chorus, for one), it has that same feeling off being pretty odd.

For being a group that emphasizes that they’re not a band in their very name, they have a real rock band sound. While there are some weird sounds and possibly some electronic stuff layered in, the majority of the instrumental is drums, electric guitar, piano/keyboard, etc. It has a nice rock sound to it, despite Band Ja Naimon not being a band.

I don’t know how much I’m going to seek Band Ja Naimon out – I already have one and I don’t know how much this sound would be my cup of tea if Kimi no Egao de Sekai ga Yabai wasn’t so good. That being said, it is a very good song so I plan on revisiting it frequently.
