One of these days, I’m going to make Q’ulle converts of more of you guys; between their slick-dancing live shows, world of individual talent and diverse songwriting, they’re one of the groups that can turn in a killer rock song and then follow it up with a clubby idol ballad sweet enough to rot your teeth.
Anyway, while you’re in the process of coming around and understanding why I encourage everybody to download “ALIVE/SAISEIRON,” you can prep for Q’ulle’s next big step forward. Building on last year’s massive OVER THE HOPE Asia tour and epic finale that saw them announce a new, major label (Avex sub avex rhythmzone), they have their next single coming in April:
Bellring Girls Heart went into dormancy yesterday with their HELLO WORLD live that was streamed live on YouTube and then, after a little while, mercilessly taken away from us, thereby robbing untold dozens of international fans of the opportunity to see idol’s murder of crows go out like only they could.

Man, I’ll admit to having almost forgotten about these rock-inspired kawaiidols since the last check-in, which was a while even after we first got as pass at them over the summer, but then they picked up a Best Debut nomination in the Best Of process, and I figured that I’d look them up again. And look, a new single!
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 →
