Here’s another group I discovered while looking through new YouTube idol music videos. Genkai Ketobashite is Merry Go Lands’ first single, and the opening song for an anime, and it’s remarkably good for being a new group and a relatively indie production. The vocals are strong – they’re deep, and at times almost sound operatic. The vaguely Japanese sounding beat that is clearly trying to evoke a more traditional vibe works really well with the rest of the song and doesn’t get in the way of the more modern idolness of it. I love idol music that tries to balance more traditional sound with a contemporary pop song and Genkai Ketobashite does just that.
