Perfume – 「Cling Cling」

 

Perfume Cling Cling

 

Perfume is gearing up for a release of a new EP. 「Cling Cling」 will be out on the 16th of July and the tracklist includes:

1. Cling Cling
2. Hold Your Hand
3. DISPLAY
4. いじわるなハロー

As usual with Perfume’s singles, instrumentals to each track are included.

We’ve had a chance to listen to Hold Your Hand, which met with some harsh criticism from the hardcore fans, who felt like the song was too similar to the last release, Sweet Refrain. While it is true, the song is pretty similar to Sweet Refrain, I actually enjoy Hold Your Hand more. Sure, it is the standard high blood sugar spike dose of saccharine pop with cutesy vocals and sweet melody but it is catchy and pleasant, something we’ve grown to expect from Perfume alongside harder electro tracks. Speaking of which, I really hope that Cling Cling is a reference to another Perfume track, Clockwork. This fan favourite was Nakata‘s top choice for the LEVEL 3 single but after discussions with the girls, they’ve decided to use 1mm to promote the album instead. Clockwork is a hypnotising track that offers a metaphor of clockwork to describe, well… sex. Rhythmic, clever and haunting. Or perhaps could it be that Cling Cling will be the Spending all my time ver.2 since they share the four track structure and the outfits seem to reference SAMT a little? Stay tuned for more info and follow us on Twitter.
