Back to holoPro covers, and I make a comeback to covering Rikka, though this is the first time I’ve covered a Rikka solo, given the first time I covered him along with Calli as a more obnoxious perv posing as a wise guy. And what I’m covering here is Rikka’s and holostars’ first original song, with this official English version having been made and released in commemoration of the original version’s MV hitting half a million views on YouTube. As someone who wants to cover holostars songs in English, official stuff like this and Tempus’s Top of the World go higher up in my priority list, and this song’s heartrendingly bright and refreshing vibes certainly helped me have fun with it. I think I also wanted to put this off for later, but remembering Rikka’s 3rd anniversary that got celebrated last month in so many ways had me wanting to upload the cover not any later than I already have.
Now, if you listen carefully, you’ll find that I did some modifications on Polymorphic Symphony’s lyrics for more natural flow. I also lowered the key, thus the extra dissonance as you watch Rikka being synced to my brattier voice. Still was a challenge to sing, though, especially considering how I had to control myself away from making my voice break while adding a bit more power during the final chorus. I mean, I wanted to yell that one part in the final chorus harder, but yeah.
Also, this is my first time working with k., who gave crisp tuning and clear and fluffy mixing to my vocals! She even convinced me very well into adding some artificial harmonies to the mix! I don’t think I even had to ask for corrections! It’s an honor to work with her, alright!
All that said, here’s an mp3 copy of this cover. Looking forward to your honest constructive feedback, too!
