Taiwanese boyband Fahrenheit releases their second Japanese single, “Treasure” on August 20. Like their debut Japanese single, this will be released in three versions (from left to right): normal, limited with DVD, and limited with photobook.
Well. Render me surprised, I actually like this song. It’s catchy and summery. Vocally, they sound like a mediocre pop-band when they sing together, but they do very well on their solos – possibly because the blending in the chorus isn’t good? Their Japanese and English skills are still questionable, but they definitely delivered another good pop song. Also, production values for this single seem to be just as good, if not better. The video and covers are both gorgeous.
The B-side on the single is “Kimi ni Muchuu”, the Japanese version of (according to HMV) “Ai Dao” on their debut Chinese album. It’s a mid-tempo ballad, which is a nice foil to the upbeat A-side. I liked this song in Chinese, so I think it’s a nice choice.
Fahrenheit have yet to show me something spectacular musically, but they do a good job of playing the sweet good-looking boyband who sing catchy pop. Their first single sales weren’t groundbreaking but did fairly well for a debut foreign boyband. Best of luck to the boys – I hope they really make it in Japan.
