Well, watch it first if you haven’t already:
I wasn’t expecting this kind of art direction at all!
I mean, we’ve heard the song enough at this point to like it or not, as one will, but I love consistent visual callbacks and clear influences, no matter how accidental they may actually be (so we ergo have FAKE NEWS to complain about), so I’m stuck somewhere between being stoked that the Band in White (can’t remember their actual name) is back from “AXIS”, that the main set runs a visual gamut between “I kill” and “Six Fall Roar” while stopping on “Losing My Religion” in between, and that Yuna keeps getting the short end of these violent relationships with oppressive elements (see: “Now I Know”). Also I keep wanting to call it “One Step Closer” and giggle when I catch myself because I bet Nao could beat Chester Bennington in a fight anymore.
Regardless, good moves in general, I remain hype for the album, and I hope it sells like hotcakes and they stay on the trajectory from last year when it looked for a hot minute like they could land on Western shores at a moment’s notice.
