Comments from Saori Hayami:

I sang this song, feeling the youthfulness in its refreshing yet somewhat poignant melody and heart-fluttering lyrics. Personally, I love the part where the two sing in a duet during the chorus. Please enjoy the “singing” video of Eiji and Rin along with their various memories in the visuals!

Comments from Nobuhiko Okamoto:

I recorded my part after listening to Hayami-san’s performance, who sang first. Her voice was so good even in the rough mix that it made me laugh out of delight. Please listen to it as many times as you like.

■ Artist Information “Gohoubi”

Gohoubi is a mixed-gender, tofu-mentality, four-member band known for their “○○ Town Pop” sound. Formed in 2018, their straightforward and unadorned lyrics, combined with a broad musical style that transcends genres, create a comforting harmony from the contrasting voices of “Cody” and “Suzy.” Beyond music, the members also take the lead in detailed art direction and music video production.

Gohoubi provides a little reward for yourself, whether it’s a day of success or one filled with challenges. Even before their debut, they wrote the song “Congratulations” for the 10th anniversary of “Shimajiro no Wow!” produced by Benesse Corporation and TV Setouchi. Their song “NO RAIN, NO RAINBOW” was used as the ending theme for FM NACK5’s baseball broadcast program “SUNDAY LIONS.”

In July 2022, Gohoubi’s independently produced 1st EP “Hajimete no Gohoubi” topped the Shibuya Tower Records’ collaborative project “Tawakuru” rankings for two consecutive weeks and sold out. In September 2022, after being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they held a sold-out solo live concert at Shibuya WWW. On November 2, 2022, marking their 4th anniversary, they released their final indie work “Spotlight” digitally.

Their major debut 1st digital single “Suki na Fuku” was released on January 18, 2023. The following single “kiss shiyo,” released in February, was used as the ending theme for Yomiuri TV’s “Kawashima & Yamauchi’s Manga Swamp” in March and April. In April, their digital single “Isshi Matowanu Ai wo Misete yo” was chosen as the opening theme for Kansai TV’s late-night drama “Zenra Meshi.” In July, they released “Nanbo no Monjai” digitally.

The first single of 2024, “Love Shuffle,” released on February 7, was used as the ending theme for Fuji TV’s “Weekly Ninety-Nine Music” in February and March. In April, they released their major debut 1st EP “GOHOBI QUATTRO -sweet-,” aiming for their largest solo live concert at Shibuya Quattro on November 15.
