Pegmap releases two videos to promote their new album, “see you, again.”
In their first video, “タコ” or “Tako/Octopus,” Pegmap demonstrates how they want to scream at you in the dark.
Compared to their prior releases, this song has a somewhat more mainstream, modern, and upbeat sound. Which isn’t to say the melodies and vocals aren’t still interesting.
Luckily, for any hipsters who might be upset about the mainstream-ness of this track, Pegmap decided to throw in occasional instagram moments.
The second video’s song is titled “鏡,” or “Kagami/Mirror.” The videos centers around… well, mirrors. Various mirrors are shown throughout the video, including one on the face of a dancing woman.
鏡 is slower, calmer track than タコ, and lacks the screaming. However, this track can also be seen as more upbeat as compared to older material. It’s also worth noting that this song was originally released on their “Come Back” ep, as an acoustic song and that this ep, previously given a limited release, was also re-released along with their new album.
Pegmap’s 3rd album “see you, again” was released July 11th, and is now available at various outlets including cdjapan. For those of you who didn’t know about them “before they were cool,” their website is located here.
