I promise that I will never look away again.
On Team Homicidols, we’ve been distracted a lot lately by art house groups and hi-concept math-punk units or idols that make you stare at your shoes and weep. But now that we gazed so hard at ・・・・・・・・・ that they vanished back into the ether from whence they came, it might be best to sink back into basics for a little while. Like a nice, simple “you got chocolate in my peanut butter” blend of J-pop and Metal.
I wonder what LADYBABY has been up to?
Screaming, growling, rapping, clean choruses and djenty guitars: that’s some back-to-fundamentals kawaii nu-metal right there, and a perfect illustration of how Team LADYBABY have stayed relevant though all of the unit’s formations and turmoil. They get the basics right and they do it incredibly well. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, especially when the output is this ferocious and enjoyable.
I have a feeling that this MV will earn stock-image status for any future profiles of alternative idol. It’s practically iconic.
This new release has especially got to excite everyone heading to Monster of Dolls next month in Italy as this track is going to be an absolute banger live.
