Going up? Just in time for their US tour in the fall, BABYMETAL has an English lyric version of “Elevator Girl”. The song, featured in BABYMETAL’s upcoming METAL GALAXY album (see below) was released earlier this year, already featured mostly English lyrics. This time around we get an English chorus as well. Somewhat more on the pop side of BABYMETAL’s work, the song features some pretty solid hooks with it’s insistent lyric. The video work is a live shot PV, which suits me just fine- most of us seem to think the group hangs its hat on the peg of its performance. The arrangement (electro intro aside) hits pretty damn hard with a wall of guitar noise that’s backed by a double kicked drum battery. “Elevator Girl” suits me very well; I’ll gladly add it to my next playlist.

Babymetal, stylized as BABYMETAL (ベビーメタル) are a Japanese kawaii metal band. Originally consisting of Nakamoto Suzuka (中元すず香) as “Su-metal”, Mizuno Yui (水野由結) as “Yuimetal”, and Kikuchi Moa (菊地最愛) as “Moametal”, the band was formed with the concept of a fusion of the heavy metal and Japanese idol genres. The band is produced by Kobametal from the Amuse talent agency. Their vocals are backed by heavy metal instrumentation played by the Kami Band during live performances. Initially formed in 2010 as a sub-unit of the Japanese idol group Sakura Gakuin, Babymetal became an independent act in 2013, following Nakamoto’s departure from Sakura Gakuin. Babymetal has embarked on several tours, including the Babymetal World Tour 2014 held after the release of Babymetal, with a majority of their tour dates taking place outside of Asia. With the departure of Mizuno Yui in 2018, BABYMETAL continues with the duo of Nakamoto Suzuka and Mizuno Yui.
