Ah, mishmash, the kind of pun-ready, merry-marking idol group that I’d have to invent from the innate substance of the universe if they didn’t already exist, so perfectly they fit into their niche as they do. Yes, one of 2018’s top debutantes, and one yet to fail to make good on that reputation with any release. Bully on them, then, to keep clips of tracks flowing onto Soundcloud, which has inexplicably emerged as the best resource for new idol stuff short of an international CD service. The latest entry:

One would think that this would be a build toward an album, but, near as I can tell, it is not; it’s just for their upcoming one-man!
