Shine Fine Movement, the five member idol group from Label the Garden, get their start on the New PV Alerts with their third single “Reflect”. The girls: Mei, Saki, Ruu, Nao, and Riko, start “Reflect” in the sublevels somewhere. Buried deep and in a darkness only illuminated by far off stage lights, the girls work their craft to impress a clown of a mascot character. The rock band arrangement plays a pop song to which the girls add pure sounding vocals. “Reflect” doesn’t rely on any particular gimmicks to get its point across, and this feels refreshing. As the promotional video progresses, the girls make their way up the stairs and into the sunlight for a performance under the sky that feels liberating after their claustrophobic earlier scenes. I can see “Reflect” as a bit of a metaphor for the indie idol game where the girls work their hardest to reach stages beyond the sublevels. “Reflect”, the third single from Shine Fine Movement, will arrive in stores on December 19, 2018.
