KAT TUN is one of the popular Johnny acts in Japan. All their singles up till now have reached #1 on the Oricon charts.
They released their winter single 'White x,mas'
White X'Mas starts with a gentle piano instrumental followed by strings. At first, only Kamenashi Kazuya sings. He is followed by Akanishi Jin. The verse is pleasant with a christmassy feeling.
The chorus follows the chorus. The chorus is strong. Everyone sounds good together. The instrumental is joined by intense drumming with the piano chimming in the background.
The verse and chorus repeat again. This time, there is a bell before the chorus (wedding bell).
The next track is the instrumental.
There is only one song on this single with its instrumental. Still, the song is very strong and one of KAT TUN's best ballads. This is the first song I heard from KAT TUN that encouraged me to hear more of their songs.
