Playing catch-up after a pair of Morning Musume ’18 concerts, sorry if these are short…
Shoko Nakagawa, popularly known by “Shokotan”, makes her debut on the New PV Alerts with her first single in three years. “Blue moon” teams the otaku goddess with megrock for a medium paced love letter. March rhythms on the snare drum match a rhythmic electric guitar riff and Shokotan’s strong vocals. On the video end of things, a trio of high school girls gaze up at that glowing sapphic symbol in the sky. While “blue moon” is not a rocker like Shokotan’s calling card “Sorairo Days”, this release is of solid construction that should please those looking for emotional outpour.
On the flip side of “blue moon”, Nakagawa Shoko appears on an instalive (you can link to her below) for an opening monologue. More upbeat than its A-side, acoustic guitars underscore the verses before a driving chorus brings things home. “Heavy Girl” presents pop styles with really great sounds. Meanwhile Shokotan, in her dramatic turn, gets rejection after rejection from friends and family. Her emotional state literally puts her in the dumps and out in the rain. Things might be a bit heavy in this promotional video, but then what did you expect with a song title like “Heavy girl”? This great coupling for “blue moon” can be found at the retailers listed below starting on November 28, 2018.
