Truthfully, I’ve been waiting for this release with anticipation. Remember that funky looking Tokyo Performance Domo video from NHK world? Well, Tokyo Performance Doll are growing up nicely with the new decidedly adult looking “TRICK U”. Lipstick red and midriffs bared, TPD groove down to a dance track with a jazzy pianos and disco string backing tracks. The tempo benefits the girls by letting them groove a bit more and savor each note of their ear-worm of a chorus. I’ve always had the impression of Tokyo Performance Doll as a squeaky clean group, but there’s some downright tricky imagery at play here. Well, the girls do have some great moves and look (I think) absolutely fabulous in their sparkled purple outfits. I’m not exactly sure if TPD are setting the bar for their future releases, but I like the added variety that a song like “TRICK U” adds to their repertoire. You can get the latest release from Tokyo Performance Doll in stores on March 14, 2018.
