Osaka’s pop punk darlings, PiGU, had themselves a live the other day. No big deal — they have lives all the time! — but … see, it’s wintertime. Bellring Girls Heart, for just one example, actually held a few of their final SHALLOW GRAVE appearances with members missing due to the flu (noboby was going to miss the finale). The point is, it happens. Idols are people. People get sick. Sick people sometimes can’t perform!
But sometimes, almost all of the idols get sick. And when that happens, well … Continue reading →
I definitely didn’t expect to go tripping over a new PiGU MV while doing a quick run through Twitter yesterday, but it took off all over the place and I’m glad because PiGU is nice. Maybe you already saw it, maybe you didn’t; here it is anyway!
“The world is full of malice” is their latest single? EP? Maxi-single? (Let’s call it that.) It’s four songs, and it’s actually on Spotify if you want to take a cruise through the whole thing. Continue reading →
I don’t know if it’s because I got up really early and then late, or because I’m telecommuting and don’t have the usual “MANIAC COME HELP WITH THIS PLEASE” at work to distract me, but today feels like it needs to end at any time, and it’s still only noon.
So you know what can help with that? Some friggin’ PiGU, that’s what.
I feel like I’ve been giving PiGU a lot of love lately, but this is what happens when you’re active and fun. For instance, just a week ago we got to look at the MV for one of the tracks on their new maxi single, and it was pretty far from the expected, but that’s okay; the A-side or whatever is available on their website, too.
It’s the teaser they released late last week that should really get your attention.
No matter what you think it’s about, there’s always one thing that kind of ruins that outlook
One of my favorite things about little pop punkers PiGU is the way they crank out content like it’s the only thing that matters. Sure, they have a cosplay cafe and stuff to promote, but the membership goes up and down and there’s new songs and videos and a DVD and one-man and … hey look, another new video!
As mentioned before, PiGU excels at cranking out live video, which is especially helpful now that they’ve re-expanded out to four members and, you know, you wonder if they’re good. Turns out, they are!
So PiGU’s been through the membership wringer, but the remaining two members ain’t care. Or maybe they do. I don’t know. What I do know is that this is a nice little seasonally appropriate song, “かくれんぼ” (“Hide-and-seek”) with a little punk edge to it.
