FRUITPOCHETTE Release MV for the Heavy & Melodic “Souten -Paradox-“!
Ehime metal idol duo FRUITPOCHETTE have released the MV for “Souten -Paradox-” from their first full album “The Crest of Evil” (release date: February 25).
“Souten -Paradox-” is quite heavy but unlike, “Ijin -CleverDick-“, it has a stronger melody that sticks in the mind instead of just chugging along. The set is also more brightly lit but Shiori Azuma and Mina Teratani spend a lot of time too close to the camera which kind of defeats the purpose. “Souten -Paradox-” is a solid reminder of the sound that made FRUITPOCHETTE one of the vanguards of the so-called “kawaii metal” genre.
Don’t make the mistake of dismissing them as “Babymetal imposters” just because you haven’t heard of them before, there are so many metal/rock-style idol groups active now that it would be naive to think that they’re all consciously “jumping on the bandwagon. That would be as naive as thinking every group where the members wear colors are copying Momoiro Clover Z. BONA METAL on the other hand…
