Japanese solo artist Riku (戮) recently came out with his track, ‘The Regret Was Left Behind’ that chronicles a heart-rending tale of loss and self-discovery.
[dropcap]J[/dropcap]apanese singer and songwriter Riku (戮) is changing the course of his career and that of the use of melodic velocity with his compelling release, ‘The Regret Was Left Behind’. The song is a heartfelt chronicle of a man who is mourning the loss of his loved one for not having been present during their final moments. The idea of the song’s theme and lyrics are extracted from one of the artist’s favorite proverbs that go, “No use crying over spilled milk.” It conveys that we should make time for the people and things we care for dearly, rather than mourning what could have been when it is too late.
‘The Regret Was Left Behind’ is redefining Riku’s creative abilities with more definition. He was the lead vocalist for Japanese-based bands such as Lin and chariots, Phantasmagoria, and HISKAREA. However, his solo career gives him a voice and perspective of his own. The stage name ‘Riku’ has two different meanings – insanity and unite.
