Geez, I don’t know what has Sebastian X in such a giddy mood, but I’d like some of it. The hyperactive act’s newest song “世界の果てまで連れてって!” explodes with Up With People pomp, an upbeat whirlwind of horns and accordion and other instruments that sound just! So! Happy! The real wonder of this new song is lead singer Nagahara Manatsu’s voice which can be best described as “gloriously untrained.” Nobody will mix her singing up with an American Idol performance, because she comes across as completely unchained here, whizzing from word to word and nearly squeaking when she gets particularly jubilant.
Oh, and the video features an elephant. What’s cooler than that?
