Hey! I'm new to the forum! Stumbled across the site a couple days ago, and I wanted to know if other people felt the same way or noticed this too. (PLEASE, link me to the thread if this topic already exists!)
Has anyone else noticed the increasing usage of a harpsichord-like sounds in J-rock/V. Kei songs? If possible, it would be great if we could pin point the exact time when this trend started arising. The first time I really noticed it being used a lot was in songs by Royz, but below I'll link some quick examples of what I mean.
Sick2 - CRAZY TOKYO (1:33)
Royz - Egoist (1:18)
(more recently) Razor - Knot Invisible (1:15)
Was there a specific group that started using this sound a lot in their music and it branched out from there, or am I just over-analyzing things..
