Girl band SCANDAL recently released the music video for their upcoming single, “Taiyou Scandalous“. It’s an enjoyable offering from the female Japanese pop rock band, and they’re a group that really deserves to sell more than they do.
I’m not writing a review on the music video, because despite enjoying it, there’s really nothing to say (it’s relatively standard fare).
Though I will add that their group concept is truly unique in the modern Asian pop scene, as I can’t think of another group in their specific genre, which makes whatever they do count as new ground. As such, it’s appropriate that “Taiyou Scandalous” represents an evolution in their style, as they have ditched the uniform concept and have begun to diversify themselves.
I’ve always liked their sound, as I feel that hearing real instruments gives the music a different quality that sets it apart from the artificial electronic shit we’re so accustomed to hearing in pop today. Needless to say, I’m a fan and I hope they continue to evolve, ideally gaining popularity along the way.
