[review] Sun Burns Down – Jin Akanishi

Jin Akanishi is hitting his stride with a fabulous new single, “Sun Burns Down.”  It’s upbeat techno-pop ala Kaskade, the lyrics hinting at some sexy time, but never wandering outside of radio-pop friendly.  The driving chorus, where Jin urges his listeners to “make love until the sun burns down,” is  fist-pumpingly catchy.  The simple beats and neatly layered mixing is a good counterpoint to Jin’s clean, emotional singing style.

Jin’s JAPONICANA tour starts March 9, 2012 in Los Angeles and we’re hoping for more dance-tune goodness from the former pop-idol.

    Love the new song! Definitely better than Test Drive.

      Completely agree that it’s an improvement from Test Drive. I think this style suits his voice and I could see this being a dance hit in Europe. Hope he releases a few more songs before the tour!
