Hello Newgrounds!

A dear friend of mine, Laura Shigihara, has just released her game Rakuen on Steam (or at least, it will be released in an hour after I've written this). She's been working on it for about four years now, and if you ever played Undertale or To The Moon, you'll love it. Laura composed the whole soundtrack herself too. You might recognise her work on Plants vs Zombies, some of the songs from To The Moon, High School Story, Super Meat Boy and a bunch of other games!

Myself and Adriana Figueroa (www.youtube.com/Adrisaurus) decided to get together and show the game our support. I put together an instrumental version and also a music box instrumental and mixed the tracks. It's such a lovely song and can be heard on the Trailer for the game on YouTube. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this!

Thanks to Laura for the permission to upload the track!

its great jordi but y would u tease me like that by including the great lyrical section but then ending the song right then without even repeating it -_-

kinda reminds me of ori & the blind forest in some ways, mood and instrument choice particularly.

They say good things come in small packages. You should know ;)

As you may know, I saw a few parts of the game, and it looks absolutely stunning! The music certainly is otherwordly as well :3
And with those words, I can easily proclaim that your and Adrisaurus's version is beautiful beyond belief as well. Your voices fit incredibly well together!
It's also difficult to comprehend how you managed to get the mix to sound so perfect.
Wonderful job, both of you!

(P.S. Gotta love that rhythmic use of the music box)

etherealwinds responds:

Thank you Alex! I hope you get to play some Rakuen. As I said, there are so many songs on the soundtrack that would just sound so nice with piano. .... and vocals ..... *winks*


This is incredibly catchy! I love the part when the lyrics come in. The chimes make the track sound so pretty.

etherealwinds responds:

Thank you very much! I'm very glad you enjoyed it Bluey! :)
