S/mileage is releasing their 4th major single, Shortcut. Shortcut will be their first single of the new year, being released on February 9th.
The preview for this song has been floating around for days, but it was obviously posted during my hiatus.
I am actually really impressed with the music for this song. It is absolutely adorable, and is the extremely upbeat music you expect from H!P. This song sounds like it could have been one of Berryz Koubou’s first couple of singles, or it could have been an Athena & Robikerottsu single, or even a Buono album song. I am completely in love with the song so far. It’s miles better than Onaji Jikyuu de Hataraku Tomodachi no Bijin Mama. And it’s probably my favorite major single from S/mileage. Let’s just hope the lyrics match.
And as usual S/mileage has perfect line distribution. I think Yuuka and Saki might have 1 or 2 more lines than Ayaka and Kanon. But that’s honestly not a big deal.
