New PV Alert: BABYMETAL – Starlight

BABYMETAL makes their (now) yearly appearance on the New PV Alerts with their latest digital single “Starlight”. We can’t really talk about “Starlight” without talking about the very recent announcement that YUIMETAL is no longer a member of the group. “Starlight” feels like a tribute to Yui and recently deceased guitarist Fujioka Mikio. Long gazes at the sky and lyrics like “Dreaming now” and “We’ll never forget shining starlight” seem tailor made for the losses. The dark promotional video features no member of the group excepting possibly the shrouded figures contemplating the stars at the conclusion of the PV. I quite like the grooving metal of “Starlight” and its “nah nah nah” motif carried throughout the song. You will watch this regardless of what I write here, but I really think “Starlight” the song outclasses “Starlight” the promotional video by a wide margin perhaps in a move to move the group past the triviality of its image. “Starlight” is available now for digital download at the links below.
