Don’t be fooled by the kigurumi intro to PINK CRES.’s latest promotional video. “Tokyo Confusion (_トウキョウ・コンフュージョ)” puts the trio in OL power suits, stylish apparel, and the modern-take kimono for most of its PV. The PV has a cramped feeling as Miyabi and co. make their way through passageways and up to a club stage. For “A woman from the universe ain’t easy (Uchuu no onna wa amakunai, 宇宙の女は甘くない)”, the trio climb into a well-cushioned limo after a day of shopping (judging by the number of bags). Both songs are easy club choices with steady beats suitable for banging out a few moves. “Tokyo Confusion / Uchuu no onna wa kunai” is the first single available from PINK CRES. and will hit the stores on May 22, 2019.
PINK CRES. (ピンククレス) is a three-member Japanese pop vocal group under UP-FRONT CREATE led by former Berryz Koubou member Natsuyaki Miyabi. “PINK” is often associated as cute color for girls and is the group’s official color. “CRES.” is an abbreviation for the musical term “crescendo”, which means music gradually increasing in loudness and represents the group’s goal to “gradually grow louder and louder” around the world. On April 30, 2015, in the first episode of the web show GREEN ROOM, Natsuyaki Miyabi stated her intentions to start a new idol group following the indefinite hiatus of Berryz Koubou in March. After an initial audition that yielded no new members, it was announced on April 1, 2016 that Nihei Yuuka and Kobayashi Hikaru, the only two finalists from the second recruitment, had both won the 2015 Natsuyaki Miyabi Shin Group Member Audition and had become members of Natsuyaki’s new group. PINK CRES.’s current lineup includes members Natsuyaki Miyabi (夏焼雅), Kobayashi Hikaru (小林ひかる), and Nihei Yuuka (二瓶有加).
