After a rather awkward phase of trying to prove to the world, and herself, I’d wager, that she’s a grown-up, きゃりーぱみゅぱみゅ, dropped a surprise single and video.
I admit that I haven’t even listened to her latest album from start to finish. However, I had listened to 「音ノ国」, her surprise single, and it’s a bop. Very reminiscent of 「にんじゃりばんばん」with an MV which is sensory overload. And I don’t mean that to be negative.
I think this identity crisis, of sorts, hasn’t done the star many favours. I get that she is growing up and we all want to be taken seriously, as adults. However, her image, in its entirety, has been so well crafted and curated that some growing pains come as no surprise.
I say, well done! It’s a fun and bright little pop jam. Who doesn’t like a little bit of pop music?
