Bundled with the first press release of Shikata’s Harmonia last month, there’s a preview/unreleased track that can be downloaded via handphone (though it is not trivial for those who don’t live in Japan). It is a track that Shikata is still working on and this 40-second track serves nothing more than a teaser for most.
Sadly, some of her fans could not even be teased, since they can’t get it in the first place. Although today I was lucky enough to meet someone who had it. All credit goes to Yumi and Michelle (from http://chat.canta-per-me.net/). And so here is the track for those who are interested:
- Acqua (sample) http://sites.google.com/site/depthcharge101posts/media/090414acqua(unreleased).mp3?attredirects=0
Sounds like Aurora (Raka’s) or a water type track (I guess the title sort of gave it away). Now that I’ve heard it, I am definitely looking forward to hearing the full version. But this also raises another question – what is Shikata doing with this one track? Is she planning to release a mini album or a single or something? Hmm yes we can all be hopeful…
