Oboro na Ageha/Moshimo (2013)
Limited Ed. Tracklist
Limited Edition w/ DVD cover
- This single comes with a Limited Edition w/ DVD version, or the regular CD Only version. In this case, the versions have different covers (as seen above).
- This single was the first single to come out in three years and nine months for Orange Range. It is also the band's first single to be released under the SPEEDSTAR Records label.
- The band called this single "a song of extremes", with side A being hard rock and side B being soft rock. This single is considered a "major debut" for the band, which underwent a massive style overhaul in the last three years.
- "Oboro na Ageha" was composed by Yoh; Yoh also wrote the majority of the lyrics for all three vocalists. The song was debuted at "RWD ← SCREAM 013".
- The PV for "Oboro na Ageha" has a dark color scheme and feel to it, along with a woman dancing in the background. This can be interpreted as the band's attempts to grow up and move to a more mature rock style. The PV was directed by Maxilla.
- Very different from the "Oboro na Ageha" PV, "Moshimo" features a cheery scene, with children in bunny ears, colorful landscapes, and the band clad in white suits. This PV is reminiscent of the band's more vivid days, but lacks the "summer" feel that the band is known for. The PV for "Moshimo" was directed by Yasayuki Yamaguchi.
- "Moshimo" was directed by Naoto; Hiroki made the lyrics with a pure love song in mind.
- "Tonari no Josephine" has a theme of a high school reunion. The title has the theme "woman next door", and to Naoto, "next to Josephine" fit well.
- Oboro na Ageha/Moshimo is worst performing single Orange Range has released since "Kirikirirmai".
