The girls of Nagoya idol group TEAM SHACHI are working up to a new album, but have released the promotional video for their new song “Rock Away” to hold us over until its release. Looking a bit more rock than usual with streaked hair and rag doll clothes, TEAM SHACHI deliver on the rock premise with an arrangement that tops out on the metronome and delivers those brassy brass arrangements that you crave. All the rock comes courtesy of Hidaka Touru（日高央, THE STARBEMS, THE BEAT CRUSADERS） and Bunta（TOTALFAT）. Of course, lets not forget that horn section! TEAM SHACHI transition between sections of the song with a hearty “Hey ho, let’s go” sung a bit differently than you might expect. In typical TEAM SHACHI style, the brand of rock heard here in “Rock Away” is not the kind of rock that’s getting all the play in the idol world: it’s not dark or overly aggressive, and no one is screaming over the top. “Rock Away” is a melodic, upbeat arrangement that leans just over to this side of anthemic. You can pick yourself up a copy of “Rock Away” from one of the digital retailers below.
