[Reckless Beat & SOTD] Kana-Boon – Silhouette (シルエット)

RECKLESS BEATS is a musical feature where I incorporate a little music into this bookish blog.

Welcome back to another episode of Reckless Beats~!

Today we have Kana-Boon‘s Silhouette, a fun, upbeat tune with catchy lyrics and great bop-ability to kick off the work week right!

If you’re a fan of Naruto (I’m actually not — I know, I know… that’s practically a sin, right? Yeah, well, I just never got into it, anime fans, sorry) then you’re probably familiar with this band. Or maybe you’ve heard of them from other anime like Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, Karakuri Circus, or Sarazanmai?

Either way, they’re certainly an established figure in the anime scene. Founded in 2008, they have five studio albums, over a dozen singles, and two “Best” albums released to date. It’s no wonder why with such an infectious sound, adorable vocals (my personal opinion xD), and great pop-rock vibe.

Here’s Silhouette!

LYRICS:

Isse no se de fumikomu gōrurain bokura wa
Nanimo nanimo mada shiranu

Issen koete furikaeruto mō nai bokura wa
Nanimo nanimo mada shiranu

Udatte udatte udatteku
Kirameku ase ga koboreru no sa

Oboetenai koto mo takusan attadarou
Daremo kare mo shiruetto
Daiji ni shiteta mono wasureta

Furi o shitanda yo
Nanimo nani yo waraerusa

Isse no de omoidasu shounen
Bokura wa nanimo kamo wo hoshiga tta
Wakatatteiru tte a kidzuitieru tte
Tokei no hari wa hibi wa tomaranai
Ubatte ubatte ubatteku nagareru toki to kioku
Tooku tooku tooku ni natte

Oboetenai koto mo takusan attadarou
Daremo kare mo shiruetto
O sore de amaru koto shiranai
Furi o shitanda yo
Nanimo nani yo waraerusa

Hirari to hirari to matteru
Konoha no you ni yureru koto naku
Shousou nakusu sugoshiteitai yo

Oboetenai koto mo takusan atta kedo
Kitto Zutto kawaranai
Mono ga aru koto wo oshiete kureta anata wa
Kieru Kieru Shiruetto

Daiji ni shitai mono motte otona ni naru nda
Don’na toki mo hanasazu ni
Mamori tsudzukeyou soshitara itsu no hi ni ka
Nanimo kamo o waraeru-sa

Hirari to hirari to matteru
Konoha ga tonde yuku
