This is Tomiko Van’s 2nd single and it was released on September 27, 2006. The single reached #14 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 12,196 copies.

If you compare Senkou to her previous single Flower, you’ll notice that this is a much darker song. The chorus features powerful vocals with heavy electric guitar riffs. The overall tone of the song is very melancholy and the way it ends is very interesting (it’s almost like a very abrupt ‘crash’). Lyrically, the song is about the sorrows and inward struggles of being alone.

The B-side, Mosaic, is definitely more up-tempo. Alongside the electric guitars, there is a jazzy piano in the background adding some flavor to the song. The chorus is catchy and reminiscent of the upbeat songs on the FAREWELL album, only better.

Overall Rating

4 stars
