Fairies release full version of "More Kiss" PV
Avex trax released the full PV of Fairies' debut single, "More Kiss" today. Considering all the promotion they have been getting, does the song live up to all the hype?
In short, no.
The chorus, which has been spammed in every clip I've seen of theirs so far, is the catchiest part of the song. This not to say the rest of the song is bad, per se. The music is actually fairly well written, and it shows off Ito Momoka's unique vocal style wonderfully. However, the backing track outside of the chorus really lacks punch until the bridge, at which point it becomes rather pretty, and very listenable. There's just something missing. The song on the whole sounds hollow; something I'd have to be in a particular mood to listen to.
Though "More Kiss" is likeable, it is nothing remarkable. But that's okay--Happiness' first single wasn't too remarkable either. Both Happiness' and Fairies' debut singles have something else in common: they both showed off the immense potential of the groups in other ways. Happiness has grown a lot as a group in the short time they have been on the scene, and I believe Fairies can do the same. I'm looking forward to this group.
...what's with all the boring sans-serif logos? Zzzzz...oh well, it could be worse...it could be Impact.
