1. Sketch for Summer
2. Sketch for Summer (Live @ Sony Music Studio)
3. Voice (Bob Sinclar Voiceless Remix)
4. Sketch for Summer (Karaoke)

This is Eri Nobuchika’s 3rd single and it was released on June 29, 2005. The single reached #175 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 825 copies.

Compared to her first two singles, Sketch for Summer is quite the departure. The song is a completely different genre of music and it can be classified as a jazzy ballad. The piano intro is very calming and lasts until the beginning of the 2nd verse when percussion, strings, and brass come in. This is where the song really begins to shine and show its true colors. Nobuchika’s vocals are absolutely amazing as well and her voice suits the music perfectly.

Next up is a fantastic live version of Sketch for Summer. The overall arrangement of the song has been slightly tweaked and it gives the music a smoky, jazz club atmosphere. Nobuchika’s vocals also compliment this change, as she sings in a more upbeat and playful manner.

Track 3 is an 8 minute long remix of her previous single Voice. Like the title of this remix implies, it does not feature any vocals from Nobuchika besides the acapella sequence from the bridge of the original version. This is a nice dance remix that focuses more on the added beats, synth, and repetitve piano chords.
