Himekyun Fruit Can Steps up With a Straight Rocker

Thanks to the eagle-eyed denizens of the idolmetal group on Facebook, we have new Himekyun Fruit Can after what feels like forever. And if top-of-the-line idol rock is your thing, it was definitely worth the wait:

“Iyo Damashi Otome Bushi” is just another in a long train of HKFC songs that are basically head-and-shoulders above what their most similar peers generate; like sister group Fruitpochette does with metal, Himekyun’s rock music is rock music by idols rather than “idorock,” as it’s increasingly known. I feel justified in calling them the Van Halen of idol just about every time I hear them.
