Kyary Pamyu Pamyu & Slow Mo

Kyary does it again. This is the song that was the background music for the ALOOK NEON glasses cm we featured earlier. (Sorry, the Toob here does not embed, so you will be redirected to Teh Toobs.)

I hope Kyary does a video for this because it will probably be a good one. Like “Yume no Hajimarinrin,” for which this is a companion piece, “Slow Mo” shows Kyary tacking in a new direction. Her producer and songwriter Yasutaka Nakata pursues here a kind of epic vibe that would do well as theme music for a Ghibli movie, or an Evangelion type clashing robots anime. A simple, climbing, soaring melody with seriously arresting percussive effects and instrumentation.

English translation, romanized lyrics, and original Japanese here.

    all the antics, eyelashes, costumes, etc aside, she really does have a very pretty and musical voice. Am forever grateful to have been introduced. Thank you for that!
