Pure Idol Heart, who’s great to chat with about idol stuff at all hours, has been tipping me off on lots of new stuff lately, but this is one that genuinely has me excited.
First up: Candy GO!GO! Like, the living embodiments of idorock. Their last single was a lot of fun, their major debut is coming out at the end of the year, and they’re just out there doing like they always do, which is put on swaggy stage shows and dominate Twitter.

But anyway, fun! Let’s go the beach and have a good ol’ fashioned party filled with a tense rivalry between preps and greasers that can only be resolved in a spontaneously choreographed dance competition!
