New PV Alert: amiinA – sign

From their second album “Discovery”, amiinA deliver the promotional video to that album’s third track. “Sign” sets a mood with a wondrous instrumental track that starts with a violins screeching like and EKG and light taps on the ride cymbal. Ami and Miyu appear as animated avatars amidst a host of animated animals and fanciful shapes that morph into each other seamlessly. The lack of distinct dimensions leaves the viewer with a mild case of vertigo, and this is probably the intended effect. I find amminA incredibly enigmatic, and “sign” doesn’t dispel that enigma. Musically, amiinA have much to offer with their complex arrangements that lean more towards pop than some of their peers in the “serious music” category of idols. Still, if I’m being honest I would have liked to see the girls as we start the new year: how are they doing? You can find “sign” on amiinA’s second album “Discovery” in stores now.

Amiina (stylized amiinA) is a Japanese idol group formed in 2012. The group name is a portmanteau of founding members Ami and Kawaii Miina’s given names. Initially, amiinA was a cover group for Momoiro Clover Z and AKB48. The group began to produce original songs with the beginning of their partnership with the music creative team nanoline. aniinA changed their name to the current stylization with the graduation of Miina and the addition of Miyu in 2016. amiinA suspended activities from December 28, 2016 to April 15, 2017 due to Miyu’s high school entrance examinations. The newborn amiinA is an acronym for ” awake mind into ideal naked Avalon”. amiinA’s current lineup includes members Ami (あみ) and Miyu (みゆ).
