We knew that “Yubikiri Genman” was a good track, but this new MV just sews up the package so well:
Komachi, how could you?!
Kaqriyo Terror Architect wouldn’t be a proper Codomomental outfit if they weren’t at the very least starting off in deliciously dark directions, and this is a hell of an entree for a second single. Leaving the song alone for a minute, the video’s mostly just straightforward idol stuff — except for that deeply foreboding love-in-the-shadows routine that, of course, culminates in Komachi’s murder of Megumi (WHY). I don’t know where this thing about love and death comes from, but it’s a company staple, and emerging as one of my favorite moves of theirs.
The song, though. Remember when I was talking about Ministry not that long ago? This isn’t an industrial track (maybe in the spice blend, rather than the base), but I can hear Jourgensen in here, or maybe a rock-base side project of Prodigy’s. It’s a bunch of unnecessary drum machine away from being trap, almost. I’m going to keep spinning it to see just how hard I love it, but yeah.
And remember, we’re doing a final Best Of call next week, so maybe keep this one in your back pocket.
