Perfume boys and girls who just can’t wait for the new EP Cling Cling, here’s something for you, a HQ version of DISPLAY:
DISPLAY in HQ sounds mind-blowing, revealing complex, distorted layers of synth and shifting beat. We can’t wait to hear it in full.
Of course, in the community spirit, we want you to support Perfume and by showing you the leak we encourage you to order Cling Cling from either iTunes, CDJapan, Amazon JP or HMV Japan.
If you’re ordering from an overseas country such as the UK, be aware that you might be asked to pay the TAX separately (although Amazon Japan covers the cost in advance).
Short music video of Perfume‘s new song DISPLAY has been leaked by a fan. The video is a commercial tie-in with Panasonic and features elaborate film editing and cinematography.
Perfume mentioned on their own radio show that DISPLAY is “the definition of Perfume”. I couldn’t have said it better myself. This short, low quality sample is enough to tell that producer Yasutaka Nakata still has got the secret formula. Airy vocals, distorted synth and addictive melody never sounded so well together. The new EP Cling Cling is out on 16th of July.
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
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?
