Libravel’s intense and bleak compositions diverge a little for their single Sakura ga Saku Koro ni Mata released on April 21 in types A, B, and C. The band revealed a short preview of the tracks, some of which infuse and integrate traditional Japanese elements into their sound, bringing a different kind of energy.

In order of the video, it’s the title track Sakura ga Saku Koro ni Mata where those traditional Japanese elements bloom. This could possibly be a ballad with its slower and soft-sounding composition, creating a calming atmosphere. The second track Hyakka Tensei amps up the tempo with the traditional elements but is difficult to make out what kind of song it is as there’s no distinct change. Type B’s third track Karakuri Cinderella is in line with Libravel’s heavier sound while keeping the motifs of the previous two tracks.

However, the same cannot be said for type A’s third track titled Juugo as there’s a departure from the theme with its brooding sound. That same sentiment extends to type C’s third track with Suiseimushi, sounding like the heaviest song out of all of them.

The aforementioned types A, B, and C feature the same title and second tracks but each has a differing third track. Type A has Juugo, for type B its Karakuri Cinderella, and for type C its Suiseimushi.

They also have new artist photos with outfits that fit in with the traditional elements of the single. If that wasn’t enough to drive the idea home, a purple light illuminates a temple in the background.
