Heartful Voice, released on 11.23.11, is Tackey & Tsubasa’s 13th single.
「Heartful Voice」 is a melodic piece with piano and orchestra making up the instrumental. The boys sing together as usual, but once the first verse finally comes around around the minute mark, the guys get their own solo lines while backing each other. It’s relatively sweet sounding with the boys’ smooth vocals filling the song and the overall rhythm and sound of the song really pulls off the “heartful voice”.
Things get more energetic with 「Our Song」 as they sing, “Rairairairai~ bokutachi no melody” to start off. The verses seem a bit fragmented with how they’re singing, but it’s nothing too bad. This is an upbeat song, but off the bat it sounds kinda messy, but I can see a lot of people liking this song.
A PV was made for Heartful Voice. The PV uses Christmas and snow to their advantage, creating a monochromatic winter video with some footages of couples shopping in between. I really like the setting they used for the duo shots, haha. Besides that, the PV is really cute with all the random couple shots, giving off a very happy, festive mood to the video.
I haven’t really been a big fan of Tackey & Tsubasa, but they still do sound really nice. Heartful Voice is really great for the upcoming Christmas season while Our Song has a more upbeat, hyper feel to it. I prefer Heartful Voice over Our Song.
