Perfume - General Discussion

Discussion in 'Pop & Justice' started by august8pm, Mar 16, 2012.

  1. I keep thinking about this ddd. Gone are the days of Perfume singles with completely new B-sides... And their B-sides are often just as good as the A-sides if not better - Ijiwaruna Hello, Koi wa Zenkei Shikei, etc.

  2. Considering how physical singles in general are on the decline, I'm surprised they decided to release it in the first place. They do have quite a faithful fanbase, so it is bound to sell some copies.

    Another case of a strong video saving a single:

  5. Usually they’ll upload the full version a few days after the release date but yeah... it’s 2020. The Japanese music industry is only one left in the world that still sticks with this outdated release strategy.

  6. Looks interesting! This is totally out of left-field, but the zooms & rewinds kind of remind me of the music video for 'Imitation of Life' by R.E.M.

  8. Billboard Japan interviewed them for the release of Time Warp. tl;dr they talk about their 15th & 20th anniversary, milestone achievements, plus performing and promoting during COVID. There are some interesting tidbits though - apparently Nakata always "writes ahead" of where Perfume currently are, and that Time Warp and Saisei are indicative of the sound they're going for this era (thank god).

  9. "Time Warp" hasn't left my mind since the radio rip. And the music video is a delight. They just keep on winning.

  10. Did anyone here attend POP Fes? I'm so tempted to purchase the VOD pass. Apparently there are 14+ hours of subtitled (!!!) variety segments from Perfume recorded just for the festival, plus a special performance of Time Warp.

  11. I didn't as I was too busy (though I am considering buying a pass to watch this weekend) but my friend did and he said it was worth it for the performance alone. They did a half hour set using live projection mapping technology and from what I saw it was some amazing work.

    Also yes, the main segments were subtitled but I don't believe the others were (the ones that are just free to watch on their Youtube channel) but that's still 6 hours of content which seems well worth the price to me.

  12. I have to say, on first hearing I was disappointed. But now I am convinced it's their best thing since 'Pick Me Up'.

    I'm also still gobsmacked that it's less than.3 minutes and has no middle eight but delivers in a similar way to 'One Room Disco'.

    Just popping in to say Time Warp is pretty lovely. It's nice to hear them on something more poppy and lyrical and less... noisy. I like how it hearkens back to their first album too.

  14. Currently watching this and mmhhmm the Butterfly and VOICE Reframe performances... I'm getting emotional.

    Got the original video so you don't have to look through the whole thing

  15. The full Reframe show is now on Netflix. Whoop!
  16. Finally - Perfume are on the Primavera Sound 2022 lineup, playing the second weekend!
  17. The new song called Polygon Wave will be released on July 2.

  18. Polygon Wave, which will also serve as the theme song for Masked Singer Japan, just premiered on radio. There's a full HQ rip of it out there but I believe it's against forum rules to post it since there's a download so here's them jamming to it on Instagram live.

    It's giving sophisticated GAME vibes. The accompanying visuals are stunning as well.

    Polygon wave is the most perfect title for a Perfume song. It sounds like a classy bawp too.

    I'm glad they're moving away from just pure noise-pop and back to something a little more delicate. That always suited them better.

  20. This sounds fantastic. I'm so excited to hear it in HQ. It has a 'Level3'-sounding dark & glossy stomp to it.
