I don’t mean to alarm anybody, but what with the Best of 2018 only recently put to bed and 2019 still more than a week off, I feel like I already have my favorite debut for next year figured out. Yes, it’s raymay, the uijin sister group that got a heck of a treatment in the Weekender because of the way they’d been teasing out their debut MV ahead of their Christmas Eve live debut with their big sisters. That’s the kind of thing that gets a Maniac to notice!
Of course, it’s the music that matters, and it’s to the music that we now turn. What does raymay have for us as an official kick-off?
Good lord. What a tour! We started off with some vintage Kouteca as interpreted by the likes of Prodigy, took a hard swerve through something more like what big sisters uijin might do, went completely off the rails to visit with PassCode (or maybe one could even say NSD), then back through some fairly safe idol spaces before wrapping up in tapestok hell. This says nothing of the quasi-narrative unfolding before us, so: Dang, that MV. I have no idea what happened, but I’m on board with it.
Watch out for raymay.
