[English review below]
惡夢扭蛋在前幾年推出三首歌曲，其獨特的風格更是吸引了不少粉絲。成員Higgo Raj曾在《全民造星II 》進了十強，卻選擇走獨立歌手路線，更是和 Dayze組成新人組合。他們曾入圍「叱吒新人組合」，而今次聯同EAGLE 一起創造出這首輕快的歌曲，相信各位也會感到興趣。
“Occasionally I…Occasionally…” Do you occasionally remember someone by chance? Do you occasionally unconsciously check up on how they are doing? Nightmare Gacha’s latest song “Occasionally (When I Think Of You)” is about a separated couple thinking of each other by chance, reminiscing along with some grumbles and regrets.
Nightmare Gacha has released three songs in the past few years, and their unique style has attracted many fans. Member Higgo Raj once entered the top ten in “King Maker II”, but chose to continue as an independent singer, and even formed a duo with Dayze. Together, they have created songs about different things in daily life, while experimenting with different elements and styles. They also have been shortlisted for the “Newcomer Group” in the Ultimate Song Chart Awards Presentation. This time, they created this song together with EAGLE, and this catchy, simple song is worth listening to.
The song begins with a simple piano solo, creating a light and somewhat hopeful atmosphere. A female voice (Dayze) followed, and the gentle but firm voice matched perfectly with the soft background piano and rhythmic drumming. After a short solo of the piano and guitar, a male voice (Eagle Chan Tianao) also joined in, and the slightly deep and emotional voice also worked well with the background music. Listening to it, your feet will tap along the beat while your body will also sway to the melody. In the instrumental section after the female lead solo, the two lead vocals hum the melody as the piano plays in the background, and the atmosphere is so relaxed and comfortable. Around the end of the song, another singer’s (Higgo Raj’s) unique rapping feels energetic yet natural, with the song finally ending with a piano solo and a mellow and upbeat atmosphere.
As for the lyrics, they are so simple and so evocative. To quote from the official description of the song, this song shows the two points of view of the same story——the boy and the girl. Both of them occasionally think of various memories of when they were together, with both regret and dissatisfaction. Listen to it carefully, you might find the lyrics to be ordinary and simple, but you can also feel the emotions of the two protagonists in the words. There might be still feelings of complaint or frustration, but it isn’t that important anymore. It was only by chance that both of them remember each other. Being able to recall the other person’s name? That would be considered a miraculous chance.
To sum it all up, “Occasionally” presents the thoughts and feelings of a former couple who occasionally think of each other, along with a relaxed atmosphere and catchy beat. If you like to listen to Cantopop, or you are also thinking of the days with him/her, then you should go and listen to this song. This song is already out on all music streaming platforms, such as YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music, etc. Give the song a try whenever you have the time!
