I take yet another walk down memory lane and catch up with soloist Nanba Shiho who I followed for a while many years ago now and for whatever reason lost touch with. “Fille! Fille! Fille!” is her fourth studio album, so I have to go track down at least one more after this, and also celebrates 10 years since her debut. For this album Shiho explores the genre of French Pop quite extensively with many of the songs having clear influences taken from the genre. It makes for an album that has a very elegant, mature feel to it though there are several songs like “Territory” and “Miwaku no Paris Sākasu Kyūkō!” that offer more energy and youthful exuberance. While not the sort of music that I would think to typically seek out to listen to I was pleasantly surprised by this album as it actually had a lot of similarities to other genres I enjoy. I guess you never know if you’ll like something until you actually try it, right?
