Waxing the 3rd wave ska like it was 1996, Candye♡Syrup make a return with a new promotional video for a new mini album. As usual, the girls are put of their lacy lolita best, crowned with the dyed coifs of their fashionable Harajuku origins. The pastels and sweets never let up during the course of “IDOL DEATH SKA !?”, which ends up sounding a lot like “desu ka?” (probably not an accident). While we’re talking about the style of the PV, I’ll have to mention the unexpected F-bomb the group drops during the chorus because … well, why? For all the style and fluffy whipped cream dispensed, Candye♡Syrup deliver a pop song complete with a I-IV-V chord progression. While that might sound trite, I enjoyed this offering because of its lack of musical pretension, which is a strange thing to say about a group whose basic premise is fashionable artifice. You will find “IDOL DEATH SKA!?” on the freshly released “iDOL Can Dye Sick Rock !!” linked below.
