URBANGARDE – Koi to Kakumei to URBANGARDE (Review)
URBANGARDE’s Koi to Kakumei to URBANGARDE is a well-earned “best” album, capsulizing over four years of the “Trauma Techno Pop” band daring audiences to love them, understand them, and hate them at the same time. Smacking our senses around since 2009, URBANGARDE has made their madness increasingly fun.
New tracks “Hatsukoi Jigoku Hen” and “Tokai no Alice” set a playful, high-energy tone right from the start, with “Tokai no Alice” emerging as a razor-sharp expose of a cute schoolgirl’s tour of lies around Tokyo. The delightful melody, fantastic chorus, and the over-the-top music video make it even more potent. Yokotan’s performance is irreplaceable.
