Back with their 9th promotional video, tipToe. get their art-house production in gear yet again for “Akane (茜)”. Overdriven guitars chords and echoed guitar leads match a thick snare sound for the musical side of the song that finds the six girls singing in a soundstage production. Exposed panel lights lend to the existential feel of “Akane”, and the tipToe. turn in some passionate vocal performances for their part. The blue performance outfits look sharp, and the drama scenes of the girls in and about the campus have the feel of an indie movie production (in a good way!). I should add the the girls of tipToe. are really growing into their looks; they should probably be drawing more than a few gazes from here on out. At this point, I’m none too sure about release of “Akane”, so let’s just all enjoy the PV for now, yeah?
[edit 2019.04.17 “Akane” is available on tipToe.’s “daydream” album, available at digital retailers now]
