“Kimi ni todoku na” provided a lot of soul to Oomori Seiko’s third full-length album “kitixxxgaia” (out earlier this year), and I’m happy the jazzy sounds get a great promotional video release. Like earlier promotional videos from Seiko, the celluloid gets the cinematic treatment. The couples pair off, yet a sense of loneliness permeates and persists in the saturated and desaturated onscreen images. From the first chords of the electric piano and the first pluck of the acoustic bass, I felt something very special with “Kimi ni todoku na”. No, it’s not the pop song that usually pops up here at NSK. And, no Oomori Seiko doesn’t deliver the kind of histrionic screech that you might associate with her. Rich and layered, “Kimi ni todoku na” is more about soul and emotional honesty: I feel alternatingly fulfilled and devastated by its sounds.
