Written as an insert song for the TV anime “Kaguya-sama: Love is War”, DAOKO’s latest promotional video puts the animated avatar of the singer straight into Shibuya. “Hajimemashite no kimochi wo (はじめましての気持ちを)”. Drawn over video of the famous intersection, the promotional video offers the familiar motifs of the falling girl and the running girl as the giantess haunts. I get a bit of throwback vibes from “Hajimemashite no kimochi wo” with DAOKO rapping over the soothing instrumentals. Of course, DAOKO also provides lovely vocals to the soundtrack like a spell or a siren song. Interestingly, you won’t find “Hajimemashite no kimochi wo” on DAOKO’s forthcoming album. But, I’ll link that full length regardless.
DAOKO (だをこ, born 4 March 1997) is a Japanese female singer and rapper born in Tokyo. She started her career when one of her uploaded videos on Nico Nico Douga received attention at the age of 15 in 2012.The name DAOKO (ダヲコ) was originally her web nickname. DAOKO released her first album, Hypergirl, on 5 December 2012 through Low High Who? Production. DAOKO had caught the attention of multiple Japanese artists such as m-flo which lead to the collaboration of the two artist to produce her album “IRONY” in 2013.
