2. Maharaja no Yoru (マハラジャの夜)
This is Salyu’s 6th single and it was released on April 5, 2006. The single reached #33 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 7,323 copies.
Out of the 4 singles that Salyu released for her latest album TERMINAL, Tower is her most pop influenced. The song utilizes more synthetic sounds along with gentle strings and progressive electric guitar chords. It’s a fantastic combination and together with a catchy chorus and great vocals, this is one of my favorite songs from her.
The B-side is the unique Maharaja no Yoru. It uses an almost mechanical, muffled beat throughout the entire song and because of its overall sound, this is an extremely experimental track from Salyu.
