For their second major single, the new look Appare! Harajuku take you on a voyage from the streets to the “anything goes” stores of Village Vanguard. Your eyes aren’t tricking you: the group lost two members and gained three more girls for a net change of +1. With that formality out of the way, Appare! Harajuku’s new song is an energetic synthy ride with the kinds of sounds that might make you think of the Disneyland Main Street Electrical Parade on uppers, which isn’t a particularly new thing when it comes to idol pop in 2017. Before hitting the stage of Village Vanguard, “Parerira parerira”puts the girls on the streets and in plain clothes. The contrast emphasizes the magical transformation from cute girls to idols and gives importance to the space in which such a metamorphosis can exist. Upbeat and peppy, Appare! Harajuku are ready and waiting for you in the depths of Tokyo subculture. “Parerira parerira / Sentimental prism” goes on sale June 27, 2018.
