Younha: Hakanaku Tsuyoku

1. Hakanaku Tsuyoku

2. Aitai

Hakanaku Tsuyoku is Younha’s eighth single, released on January 17th, 2007. It reached #36 on Oricon and sold 2 998 copies. Hakanaku Tsuyoku was used as the opening theme for the anime Kiba.

Younha steps out of the realm of piano rock and jumps straight into punk with Hakanaku Tsuyoku (ephemeral and strong). Out of her three singles after Go! Younha, this one blows all others away, easily. Whereas there is no great distinction between chorus and verses, the constant electric guitars and powerful beats keep the song going and prevent it from getting boring. Her voice is as beautiful and powerful as ever, and stays that way for the rest of the song.

Aitai (I want to love you) is moving ballad with a piano and tiny drops of synth. The vocal work, above everything else, on this B-Side is astonishing, especially when she says “aitai”. Like Hakanaku Tsuyoku, it has nothing interesting or catchy, it’s just good.
