1. Atarashii Hibi (あたらしい日々)
2. Ougon no Tsuki (黄金の月)
3. Atarashii Hibi (Instrumental)
4. Ougon no Tsuki (Instrumental)

This is Every Little Thing’s 36th single and it was released on August 27, 2008. The single reached #10 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 26,342 copies. The 1st track was used as the theme song for the drama Shibatora.

A refreshing song that’s perfect for the summer is the best way to describe Atarashii Hibi. With an arrangement that includes mostly upbeat strings and piano, the song definitely has a spirited and lively sound. Kaori Mochida continues to show strong vocals as well and that’s always a plus. The song wouldn’t be complete without an electric guitar solo provided by Ichiro Ito either!

I thought that the other A-side, Ougon no Tsuki, was better though. It has the fast paced rhythm and atmosphere of Atarashii Hibi, but the music is a lot more progressive thanks to the frequent electric guitar riffs. The melody seemed catchier with a chorus that was memorable too. Both of the tracks on this single are pleasant but I thought that Ougon no Tsuki was the more interesting song of the two.

Overall Rating

4 stars

  1. I knew you’d prefer the second a-side. ELT’s upbeat songs are their best.

  2. Are there any samples located anywhere on the internet? I’ve been out of the ELT loop for a while and haven’t listened to anything of there’s since HiFi message.
