Tatsuya Kitani – “ALWAYS BE WITH YOU XD”

Music is one of the most powerful storytelling mediums — and pop prince Tatsuya Kitani is well versed in the art of linking language and musical expression. Contrary to its innocent title, this J-rock track is anything but childish. Written and arranged by Tatsuya, “ALWAYS BE WITH YOU XD” is a twisted love song. The narrative seems to be a nod towards the Japanese culture slang term Menhara — a reference to a female showing unstable emotions and obsessive love.

Tatsuya creates an image of a girl’s expression of her warped love and deep appetite for a long lasting impression. Singing eerie verses such as, “In sickness and in health / Even when I’m sleeping with someone else / We’ll always be together in the same nightmare!” Tatsuya expertly presents the protagonist’s extreme desire to severely imprint the life of the other — even if it’s in the form of “an unforgettable regret” in the other’s day-to-day life.

Equal to the song’s raw emotions, the roaring of the electric guitar and percussion mimic the madness of the girl’s perception of love. Opening with an arpeggio in the introduction, the rock pop song reflects its lyricism as it gives a positive impression on top of its frightening delivery of emotions. Tatsuya commissioned indie illustrator Boya, who provided eye-catching artwork to serve as the music video content. The art piece is a distorted image, showing the cynical personality of the young girl. The illustration slowly expands into the original sizing of the thumbnail, and like the song, burns its image and colors into your mind.

MARK – “200”

Multi-hyphenate artist MARK has returned with his third solo release “200.” The track combines drum and bass rhythms with rock influences, incorporating electric guitar sounds reminiscent of the early 2000s. Sung mostly in English, the song expresses the uplifting feelings inspired by love with lyrics like “You are my rockstar, without you I’ll always feel alone.” In the music video, MARK channels his inner SpiderMark, a moniker his fans gave him due his similarities to the superhero. Over the years he has leaned into the role with costumes and clever lyrics, which ultimately culminated in the “200” video. Here, MARK gives his own origin story. As his third standalone single in as many years, “200” is a good precursor for what’s in store for MARK’s long-awaited debut solo album release in 2025.

Boxi Chen, Max Aiden – “Us to Love”

Capturing the hearts and ears of many, multifaceted Chinese artist Boxi Chen and Taiwanese-Mexican artist Max Aiden return with a song that encourages listeners to dance their emotions away. Us to Love” dives into the narrative of a desired love followed with the desperation and fear that come along with it. When they discover love, the two artists beg for patience in this potential relationship. Instrumental wise, this synthwave track adopts a synth-lead feel with it an airy synthesizer carrying the melodic background. The dynamic song nods to the ‘80s pop sound as the use of a notable kick-and-snare drum beat gives listeners the impression of a comforting nostalgia. On top of the memorable chorus, the artists brilliantly mix lyrics in English and Chinese, adding to the song’s unique character and charm.

Only a week since his last P-pop release “PAPALAYO,” renowned OPM singer-songwriter Zack Tabudlo returns with a heartfelt declaration of love full of desire, longing, and affection.

moon tang – “Getaway”

Following the heart-wrenching series about the breakup between a young couple, Hong Kong-based artist moon tang illustrates their resolution in “Getaway” (original title: “趁你旅行時搬走”). In the end, they decide to leave the relationship, which they had been trying to find reasons to stay for. Known for her healing voice and authenticity, moon tang’s melancholic ballad carries the heartsick lyrics through its somber piano performance and minimal bass band playing. The song follows the story told in the previous released “Housing Supply Issues,” a touching track describing the helplessness and pain the heroine experienced in a relationship that was weakening. 

Expressing her desire to let go of the past and go their separate ways, “Move Out While You’re Traveling” tells the story of the heroine coming to the final decision. She moves out and embarks on a trip away from her home and her relationship. The heartbreaking song was composed by musician Gordon Flanders, who also served as the vocal editor and executive producer. The music video switches between cinematography shots and vlog-like footage. Moon is seen packing her bags and traveling from one location to another with a pensive expression.
