With their fifth major single release, “Soup”, Maison book girl grants us the cloudy sky visuals for “Kojira koujou (鯨工場)”. Smokestacks and acid rain touch the clear umbrellas of the world of Maison book girl, and the fanciful keyboard strains in shades of polyrhythms color the PV. While the promotional video might seem like an industrial nightmare complete with a hooded plague doctor carrying around a balloon with buoyancy issues, the concluding moments of the “Kojura kouou” gives us a rather straightforward dance shot of the girls on a wasteland with rusting ship containers for background. Baby steps, I guess. Naturally, I’m entranced by all things Maison book girl (and the whale flukes diving into the blue only cements my adoration). “Kujira koujou” is the lead track on “Soup”, available on April 3, 2019.
