The quick tempos and synth leads set up the heat for the newest UP UP GIRLS (kakko KARI) promotional video, “Heat Beat Island (ヒート ビート アイランド)” High above the city, the girls sing their song on the top floor. The music shifts to something a bit more carribean as the scene shifts to a wood bar where the girls get to sing their solo verse lines. The tropical themes and dance beats are an exoctic combination, and it makes for some pretty strange bedfellows that the UP UP GIRLS straighten out with their charisma. “Heat Beat Island”, which may as well refer to the isolated rooftop of the promotional video, gives us plenty of scenery to view as it encourages us to get up and dance. “Heat Beat Island” can be found on the latest UP UP GIRLS (kakko KARI) triple A-side single “Da Dan Dance!/Heat Beat Island/5 to the 5th Power”, available in stores on June 25, 2019.
