Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, It’s Goose House!

“What is Goose House?” you may be wondering. You may be curious as to why the top part of the picture has Japanese words too. Well fret not, for your questions will be answered.

Goose House is a Japanese music group. They were once named “PlayYou.House” but have changed it to what is now today! Goose House has gone through several changes in their members since they were formed in 2011, but currently they comprise of 7 members: Shuhei, Kei, Migiwa, Manami, Sayaka, Watanabe and Johnny. They play covers of songs of many different genres, from J-pop to E-pop, Anime soundtracks to soulful ballads and the music they produce come from anywhere and everywhere. One of the most popular songs they have created would have to be 光るなら(Hikaru Nara), the opening for the anime Your Lie in April (Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso). Your Lie in April is a widely known and well received anime full of heart and passion. Thus, I find that the song is extremely suitable. Goose House has a YouTube channel with both their original and cover songs: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFDL0NuxUBAvvu1PnIwW2ww (Goose House) and I totally recommend you to check it out!

I love Goose House for their originality and talent. All of them can play various instruments and sing well, especially Kei. When you put all their skills together, you get a bomb of amazement and wonder! How their voices and instruments match so excellently will blow your mind and leave your heart constantly feeling like it’s going to jump out of your chest. One of my all-time favourites would be their cover for the song “Sun” by 星野 源 (Hoshino Gen). The liveliness and joy in the video will never fail to cheer me up when I’m tired or sad. It sneaks into the crevices of my heart and lights it up like fireflies in the dark.

Overall, I’m in awe at the way music can transcend languages. Even though I don’t understand Japanese fully, I can still appreciate the melodies and harmonies I listen to, especially from Goose House. I enjoy listening to their tunes as I can feel their heart and soul in every note and lyric. I suggest that you listen to them as well because you’ll never know if you like it until you try it. Maybe it’ll be the definition of ‘good music’ to you. And good music will forever make me happy, so I hope it will make you happy too?
