YUI’s Holidays in the Sun

By  •  Music, Downloads

Do hear her kawaaiii Yui-go

I was thinking of starting music updates with Supercell but that would have been just too predictable, so I’m starting with another favorite of mine: YUI. She has already released four full-length albums since 2006 (From Me to You, Can’t Buy My Love, I Loved Yesterday and Holidays in the Sun) and around 17 singles. This 23-year-old Japanese singer, songwriter is not only a multi-instrumentalist but an actress as well (starred in Midnight Sun). Her signature remains to be guitar-based sound and soothing vocals that are complimented with a dash of well-placed English phrases. YUI’s voice is sweet and compliments well with Pop genre for easy listening with upbeat vibes. I’ve followed her since I first heard her in Bleach’s fifth OP/ED.
