The fourth single from Junjou no Afilia sees leader Aomi Maho off to her graduation with an upbeat mysterious mood in “Zankoku no Babel (残酷のバベル)”. The girls spend time in plainclothes, black witch gowns, and shining red performance outfits. There’s magic in the air as the members practice levitation, reversing gravity, stopping time, and of course breaking hearts. “Zankoku no Babel” works with a sprawling arrangement that builds high drama with its brooding melody and guitar riff interludes. It’s quite a work that takes a little bit of time to truly appreciate; it’s no simple pop song. “Zankoku no Babel” is on sale now.
