New idol group 81moment give a taste of their single with the short version of “UTAGEI”. Boy, they are not kidding with the short part of this business: this promotional video clocks in at just about 1:10 minutes. With this small amount of marrow to suck, I can tell you that I am somehow drawn to the group’s sound which straddles the territory between conventional idol music and the more “alt” idol scene. “UTAGEI” seems to point more in the traditional idol direction with its upbeat synth leads. I think the real star for 81moment is their costume department that put skirts and bare shoulders together with a decorator crab’s assortment of fabrics and textures. “Utagei / Kiseki wa Sude ni Umareteru” goes on sale May 16, which is just around the corner … right?
