MELLOW MELLOW, the diminutive Sunmyu subunit, release a promotional video for their coupling track “Tagatameni” the other day. I know, I didn’t actually cover the single track “DEAR MY STAR”- my bad. I hope this will make up for things. The song is a cover version of the OP theme of the 1979 television anime “Cyborg 009” (titled “Dare ga tameni (誰がために)”). If I’m reading correctly, the girls choreographed this work by themselves with the guidance of KEN (ex DA PUMP). There’s a definite modern spin to the sound of “Tagatameni” with the showa melodies peeking through around the edges. You can see MELLOW MELLOW still coalescing into a unit with a new sense identity, and watching that process is exciting. “Tagatameni” is mostly a dance shot promotional video with a few solo close ups and flashy transitions to spice the mix, but for a coupling track I think it’ll do nicely. You can find “Tagatameni” on the Limited version of MELLOW MELLOW’s 3rd single “DEAR MY STAR” in stores now.
MELLOW MELLOW is a three member dance and vocal unit. It was formed on October 2, 2017, with the thought that “I want everyone in the whole world to feel and taste mellow melodies, mellow souls and mellow sounds.” Two members of MELLOW MELLOW (Niihara Sena (新原聖生) and Noda Mami (野田真実)) are also members of Sunmyu. MELLOW MELLOW’s lineup currently includes members SENA, MAMI, and HINA.
