If you’ve been following the ongoing idol soap opera that is WACK this past year, you’re probably aware of CARRY LOOSE (formerly known as “Curry Rouxz” and “Oh god yet another group to add to YUiNA’s ongoing chain”). The group formed shortly after the disbandment of second-generation BiS, with its former members Pan Luna Leafy, YUiNA EMPiRE, and a kid from WACK’s “WAgg” trainee group, Uruu Ru. At the start of the month, ex-Idol Renaissance Yumeka also joined the party, and a self-titled debut album was scheduled for next month, of which its first track, Yasashii Sekai, dropped for free on dropbox and soundcloud today! Is this going to be another BiS-esque weekly thing? Who knows, but for now, just listen to it.
What’s my own personal verdict? Well, honestly, I’m a little disappointed. It’s not a bad song in the slightest, it’s exactly what I’d expect from WACK, in fact. But, that’s the disappointing part. This was an opportunity for WACK to do something completely fresh and different to what they had done before, and when they began bringing in producers other than Matsukuma to do the arrangement, many of us got excited for something not yet done before. But in the end, we got a song that could have been given to any WACK group. Oh well. I guess we’ll just have to wait until the album comes out (unless CARRY LOOSE pull another BiS 3rd gen) to see if there are any surprises out there.
