The PV for the first song of Buono!’s 13th single titled Hatsukoi CIDER/DEEP MIND has been released.
I didn’t actually expect to see the full PV for the first song before a radio preview was released, but I have to say that I am more than pleased to see the whole thing up as a whole since seeing the PV with the song and the outfits without any previous preview gives off a better vibe of the song instead of hearing it and imagining something different for the PV, and the least I can say is that both the song and the PV are simply amazing, Buono! style.
First off, I’d like to comment on the song alone which is a very energetic and upbeat song that just amazed me from the start since it’s like no other upbeat/genki song from H!P, having a slightly more rock sound to fit Buono!’s image, and what I personally just adored is the variety in the sounds between the chorus and the verses, as well as the instrumental, and the overall feeling of the song is an unstoppable feeling of freshness and renewal thanks to the lyrics too, but I can’t deny that the PV plays a big role in the influence of the song since it makes it sound 100 times better.
The PV isn’t really super special, but this simple setting where the girls sing has been transformed into an amazing scene for the video since the background of a black and grey city with the band in the shadow (which seems more realistic than the previous boy band), contrast amazingly well with their bright pink outfits, and I couldn’t help but see a slight similarity to Gachinkou de Ikou! and Zassou no Uta, both for the band and the disposition of the microphones with the girls singing, and I would really like everyone to see it at least once just to check out for yourself how amazing this PV is with the various scenes, from the transparent floor where the girls appear on top, or the shots of various scenes appearing one after the other from between the girl’s hands, and for once, I absolutely love the close-up scene since it’s so fresh and energetic, and alongside Momo’s cuteness, Miya’s sexiness and Airi’s attitude, the PV takes Buono! songs to a whole new dimension of freestyle PVs.
Hopefully everyone can see how special this PV is since it’s without any doubt one of my favorites (if not my #1) from Buono!, and I absolutely can’t wait for everyone to check it out and also for the second song’s PV to come out since it will finally feature the most awaited dance shot Buono! fans have been waiting for.
The release date is set for 1/18.
