Last month we reported that singer/songwriter Kenshi Yonezu would be providing the theme song for film “Kaijuu no Kodomo”. The movie’s second trailer, which features a preview of this track, has now been uploaded to YouTube.
Based on what we can hear, “Umi no Yuurei” appears to be a ballad with strong electronic influences, coupled with an emotionally cathartic chorus. Of note, the film’s catch phrase – “Ichiban Taisetsu na Yakusoku wa, Kotoba de wa Kawasanai”, or “The Most Important Promises are not Exchanged with Words” – appears to be referenced in the track’s lyrics.
You can find this visually striking trailer below.
