Lo about six weeks ago one of 2020’s single best group debuts — I speak here, of course, of Sway Emotions Slightly, you are capable of working out these context clues — issued us a challenge: retweet the tweet X many times, and you will be progressively awarded. Now me, I’m a glutton, so if a particular personal favorite idol unit tweets out that 300 tweets are necessary to release this new MV, then you’d better damn believe that’s what I’m going for. One could say some things about how long it took to get those 300, but it definitely happened and now here we go with SES’s latest:
One of the highest-quality new acts of 2020 is showing that they’re grabbing 2021 by the horns, too.

And then, while you’re buzzing over the immensity of it, let’s have a nice long post about awesomeness and feelings and stuff.
Gawd but I love everything about that. I’m usually the first person to complain about a boring MV, but “boring” and “not action-packed” are not synonyms, and in fact this MV is anything but boring.

I’m usually inclined to use a Let’s Discover Some Idols kind of title on these posts, but please, my friends, let’s dispense with formula for the sake of saying the thing that is good and true and pure, which is that there are many idols and many idol debuts, but only a handful of them truly excite. And one of them is Sway Emotions Slightly.
