After a length of absense from the singles game, Jyujyu release their latest shortform release with their latest “Hi jitsuzai sei shoujo (非実在聖少女)”. In the darkness (always the darkness), Jyujyu present a dance shot in a poured concrete basement that seems to work perfectly with the cold detachment of the subjects. Similarly, solo closeups are shrouded in shadows and give the group the look of vampires on the prowl after awakening after a hundred year sleep. The gothic horror vibe gets a jump start with the eerie piano intro that sounds like it would be right at home in a classic horror flick. The musical offering feature a tightly choreographed live band arrangment that, while never really approaching the bombast of full metal, pours on the guitars like a concrete grave at the bottom of the ocean. Predictably, I love this stuff. Pick up a copy of Jyujyu’s latest “Hi jitsuzai sei shoujo” when it hits stores on August 6, 2019.
