Noisycell is an indie rock band out of Japan that is slowly starting to gain more and more fame. They have achieved some success with their song, Last Theater, featured as the ending song for the anime, Death Parade. Since then, the band has gained a good cult size following. Recently, the band put out a newer song, Lily.
Musically, the song is pretty good and energetic. While it certainly has a ballad feel to it, it is still got a good heavy energy to it. The fast drum work and fast guitar playing really contribute to that energy, especially in the songs intro. The verse for the most part keeps that energy going with a slight break in the pre chorus before bringing it back in the main chorus. It is a good transition to use the pre chorus to get the listener ready for the main chorus and this band executes that very well. Vocally, the song is very good as well. The Woo Woo at the beginning of the song gives a very good boost to the songs energy. The melodic vocals Ryosuke are very impressive. While I wouldn't say he's the greatest singer I have ever heard, he does a great job carrying the song vocally and the melodic style he uses is very effective.
Lyrically, the song is basically about a break up in a relationship, and the complex feeling of that. The lyrics are not bad and the message is good. However, this is a message that has been done many times in music and every person is sure to have heard it 100 times. However, the music and vocals communicate the song's message effectively and that is very important and helps to save the song.
Noisycell is a talented band that looks to have a bright future ahead of them. This song displays the bands talent very well and shows they got a good chance to make it. The music is very good and while the lyrics are nothing new, the vocals really communicate the message well and sounds great. For having great music and great vocals I give this song a 3.5 out of 5.
