50 YMM MVs Day 31: Wave

To start this article off, let me inform you that I’m waving hello to you right now and typing with one hand!* It’s not easy, but I believe in diving deep into the themes that these MVs explore!

Today we’ve got YOU’LL MELT MORE! offering a staple music video trope: The conceptual MV where you rely on the general public, and also quasi-celebrity cameos to help create the content that gets edited together into a warm-hearted, feel-good video. Every artist does one eventually! The song is called “Eien no Shunkan”… Let’s give it a look…

50 YMM MVs Day 30: Heads

Once in a lifetime there’s an idol group that comes along that really captures a wide range of genres, styles, concepts, and moods in a way that seems effortless and perfect.  There are several groups that have attempted this, usually with various results. And while some come off very well, others are simply crosseyed and painless.Others miss the mark entirely, slipping off the map onto a road to nowhere.

But I’m going to declare that bar none, YOU’LL MELT MORE! do it better than anybody, mixing everything from sax and violins and punk rock and bubbly pop in a beautiful stew of incredibly fun music. And with their Talking Hits EP, they offered their  take on new wave, giving us a fresh peek into their wild wild life….

50 YMM MVs Day 29: Architecture

On October 4, 2017, five years to the day after the original members of You’ll Melt More! met for the first time, they celebrated by releasing the TALKING HITS EP.  They previewed this with the video for A! Sekai wa Hiroi Sugoi (Ah! The World is Amazing).  But is the song amazing?

50 YMM MVs Day 28: 無 無無 無無無無 無無無無無

At this point we’re definitely committed to seeing this 50 YMM MVs project through, which is great because:

  • We looooove YOU’LL MELT MORE!
  • We want you to looooove YOU’LL MELT MORE! too, so not only is this is a total labor of love, but it’s a mission to save your soul.
  • Revisiting YOU’LL MELT MORE!‘s career has been a lot of fun for the Homicidols crew as a team-building activity and we’ve loooooved doing it.
  • Rewatching these MVs has truly reignited in us the joys of why we  looooove YOU’LL MELT MORE! so much…

On that last bullet, this MV for their song “Music 3, 4-bu de owatchimau yo ne” especially reinvigorated my appreciation for how incredibly great this group is live…

50 YMM MVs Day 26: Delicious

A preface to say that if you have photosensitive epilepsy you probably shouldn’t watch this video.

Have you ever been to a cafe where the service is horrible but because you don’t want to look like an entitled boomer you just grit your teeth and enjoy your food? Well what if the cure for that scenario was hypnosis? You’ll Melt More know what’s up in the video to Moi Moi:

50 YMM MVs Day 25: Feminine

Welcome to the halfway point! Imagine the world before Corona where anybody could go out during the hot summer days and relax with their friends. The drinking, togetherness and nostalgia: those are the key points of the music video for “Unmei”.

50 YMM MVs Day 24: Insanity

“HA HA HA HA HA!” cackles Ano derangedly as the MV for Furuete Yomigaere (Shake and Revive) begins.  “HA HA HA HA HA!” agree the others, and from this unhinged opening, the song only gets more demented.  This, the lead track from the Solitude and Counterattack EP, was You’ll Melt More!‘s first new material for eight months and was a sweet, flaming hell of a comeback.

50 YMM MVs Day 23: Pyjamas

There was an eight month gap between releases following You’ll Melt More!’s July 2016 mini-album WE ARE A ROCK FESTIVAL.  Perhaps to keep them fresh in the minds of their fans, or perhaps because they just love making music videos so much, late November of that year saw yet another track from the aforementioned mini-album get the MV treatment: Night Hiking.
