Cheeky Parade serve up a flashback to 1980’s coin-op video games with their new single “Shout Along!”. Pastel graphics pop and the girls are copy-pasted into a variety of virtual-looking, Max Headroom style settings. Musically, “Shout Along!” continues the along the same vein as the group’s previous single, “Hands Up!” with crunchy guitars, keyboards, and plenty of the cheeky attitude. On the other side of the coin, the promotional video doesn’t seem to give the girls much to do other than mug for a camera. I have to wonder if Cheeky Parade keeps pulling the short straw when iDOL Street PV budgets are being allocated. Or, perhaps the group is being kept in a holding pattern until the return of Yamamoto Marin and Suzuki Mariya. Ready or not, you can Shout Along with Cheeky Parade on April 26, 2017.
